Review of Department of Health and Human Services’ Information Security Practices

The Commissioner for Privacy and Data Protection, David Watts, has announced a review of DHHS’s information security practices.
The review will focus on three main areas:

  • DHHS’s foster care operations
  • DHHS’s domestic violence operations; and
  • DHHS’s information security governance, in order to better understand the root causes of any systemic security shortcoming.

The Commissioner has served notice on DHHS to produce documents and information relating to the review.

The Commissioner urges all who consider that the security of their personal and sensitive information may have been compromised to contact our office on 1300 666 444.
