In line with OVIC’s regulatory priorities, on 21 October 2020, Victoria’s Privacy and Data Protection Deputy Commissioner commenced an examination into the protection of personal information in Victorian universities.
The purpose of the examination was to ensure that Victorian universities protect personal information as required by the Information Privacy Principles (IPPs). The IPPs are the foundation of privacy law in Victoria and set out the minimum standard for how Victorian public sector organisations should manage personal information.
This examination report contains important lessons on improving the protection of personal information by implementing robust policies and procedures.
