Galexia providing independent privacy advisory services to Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) - August 2017
Galexia has been engaged by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) to provide independent privacy advisory services
Following a competitive tender, from August 2017, Galexia has been engaged by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) to conduct an independent Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) on the Multi-Agency Data Interchange Project (MADIP).
Galexia has been engaged by the ABS to provide independent advice on the large-scale data interchange between the ABS and other Government agencies. This PIA reflects a growing interest in ensuring that privacy and security concerns are addressed in the integration of data for research purposes.
The Multi-Agency Data Integration Project (MADIP) proposes to bring important national datasets together to explore how the Australian Government can make better use of existing public data for policy analysis, research, and statistical purposes.
There are six Commonwealth agencies working together on the MADIP:
- Australian Bureau of Statistics,
- Australian Taxation Office,
- Department of Education and Training,
- Department of Health,
- Department of Human Services, and
- Department of Social Services.
