IDC Names Securiti a Worldwide Leader in Data PrivacyView
Last Updated on September 28, 2023
The Queensland Information Privacy Act (“IPA”) is a privacy regulation that ensures individuals have their personal information collected, stored, shared, and secured per a strict set of rules by the public sector agencies. The Act is further corroborated by certain "privacy principles" such as the Information Privacy Principles (IPP) and the National Privacy Principles (NPP) that apply to different bodies.
The Office of the Information Commissioner (OIC) (“information commissioner”) is the body primarily responsible for enforcing the IPA across Queensland. Additionally, a privacy commissioner will act as a deputy to the information commissioner, with particular responsibility for matters relating to the information commissioner’s functions.
