Galexia completes privacy advice and an independent PIA for Department of Prime Minister & Cabinet on the proposed Data Sharing & Release Bill and related regulatory framework - June 2019
In July 2018 Galexia was engaged to provide privacy advice and an independent and public Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) on the proposed policy settings and related legislative reforms surrounding the Data Sharing & Release (DS&R) Framework.
The PIA was prepared prior to the finalisation of the Data Sharing & Release Bill and Galexia’s engagement process facilitated the Australian Government Department of the Prime Minister & Cabinet <www.pmc.gov.au> and Office of the National Data Commissioner (ONDC) <www.datacommissioner.gov.au> to adopt an iterative approach to the development of the policy settings and to the Data Sharing & Release Framework.
The purpose of the PIA is to assist in identifying and managing privacy issues that are raised by the proposed framework for the sharing and release of data that will be facilitated by the Data Sharing & Release Bill. The key proposals are:
- To enable a range of data sharing and data release activities for permitted purposes; and
- To create an effective governance framework for the proposed data sharing and the release of public sector data.
Galexia completed the PIA in mid 2019 and the Department of Prime Minister & Cabinet and Office of the National Data Commissioner will be making a public release soon after.
