Privacy and Right to Know Practitioners Group Event
Privacy Awareness Week 2021: What makes a great PIA?
Date: Thursday 6 May 2021
Time: 10:00 - 11:20am
Format: Register for the Teams Live event here
About: The NSW Privacy and Right to Know Practitioners group together with Privcore are pleased to invite privacy practitioners to their PAW event, What makes a great PIA?
This engaging event captures this year’s PAW NSW theme; Make Privacy a Priority and aims to help privacy officers influence senior decision makers and project owners about the need to conduct privacy impact assessments (PIA) for high risk processing activities. It is based on a report Privcore recently released on “What makes a great PIA?” which privacy officers can use to influence senior decision makers.
Annelies Moens, Managing Director, Privcore, will take practitioners through:
- what a PIA is and what it is NOT
- what to consider when making decisions about whether a PIA is needed
- when and why a PIA should be done for high risk processing activities
- what a PIA should cover
- who should do it
- what to look for in a skilled PIA provider and
- whether once completed, the PIA should be published.
Going beyond compliance, a great PIA helps build customer and citizen trust and confidence in projects. It also reduces risks and costs of high risk processing activities involving personal and health information.

About: The roles and focus of regulators may vary between compliance, privacy culture, and privacy awareness. Through their Offices, these regulators may be involved in law reform, collaborative efforts, community outreach, awareness campaigns and other initiatives that elevate how businesses and the public sector view privacy. This session features a collaborative of Privacy Commissioners from across the APAC region in celebration of Australia’s Privacy Awareness Week 2021. Our speakers will share how they are working as regulators and advocates of ‘privacy best practice’ to make privacy a priority.
