You’ll soon be bombarded, if you haven’t already, with spam from every man and his dog (well vendors) about the Privacy Act amendments due to come into play in early 2014 and why you need their products.
In my opinion, in order to get yourself up to speed with the Act, you don’t have to bother with a long webinar or half-day function, just spend 10 minutes here.
It should be enough to almost become an “expert” in the Privacy Act and to consult to clients or your management, but if you’re really rushed, spend five minutes here.
We can’t assume that amendments will be supported by tougher compliance regulations. But keep your new knowledge close to hand should you find a reason for it to be called into play.
There’s nothing better than impressing a client or management with knowledge of security/risk related Act(s).
