Summary

Privacy laws and policies can no longer be avoided. They increasingly affect almost everyone who deals with information about individuals in areas such as employment, banking and finance, the administration of government benefits, telecommunications, health care, marketing and the media.

Privacy legislation and regulations are multiplying. The Commonwealth, New South Wales and Victoria all have comprehensive privacy regulation in the private sector. New technology brings with it a host of privacy questions and concerns. The Bulletin features articles on topical privacy issues by experts in the field; reports on changes to legislation, guidelines and industry codes affecting privacy; and gives details of cases affecting privacy.
