Topic: The merger of competition and privacy regulation: Implications of the ACCC’s Digital Platforms Inquiry on privacy reform
The ACCC’s Final Report on the Digital Platforms Inquiry has profound implications for Australian businesses and others regulated by the Australian Privacy Act. The privacy agenda is now also a competition agenda as the government sets out to increase enforcement provisions in the Privacy Act to align with the Competition and Consumer Act. The ACCC has recommended substantive changes to the Privacy Act – find out why and how this impacts you.
Speaker: Annelies Moens
Annelies Moens is Managing Director at Privcore. Annelies’ vision is to make privacy core business – a discipline as integral to business and government as finance, with the chief privacy officer as important as the chief financial officer role. Today much of the value of an entity lies in the data it holds.
Annelies is a widely recognised global privacy expert and thought leader, trusted by business executives, government and privacy professionals with nearly 20 years’ experience. She has led and conducted hundreds of client deliverables, including privacy impact assessments, global privacy risk assessments, developed privacy frameworks and privacy by design strategies, prepared data breach responses and provided advice on cloud and cross-border data flows.
Annelies’ privacy career started in 2001 at the Australian privacy regulator, now the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC). In her regulatory role, she built extensive assurance and complaint handling expertise and led audit and investigation teams as Deputy Director of Compliance. Annelies co-founded the International Association of Privacy Professionals in Australia and New Zealand in 2008, and was its President in 2011-2012. Her previous roles have included working as the Deputy Managing Director of a privacy consultancy, Group Manager of a copyright licensing agency and External Relations Manager of a global online legal library service.
Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions of the speaker at the end of the presentation.
