Data Protection Events and Forums

 

The Data Protection team regularly hosts events and forums as a means to engage with our VPS and Industry stakeholders.

Over the past year the team has delivered a range of sessions including background briefings on the VPDSF, as well as targeted events discussing the VPDSF Five Step Action Plan.

These sessions helped inform the development of the Victorian Information Security Network (VISN), which seeks to promote the uptake of Victorian Protective Data Security Standards and offers a platform for stakeholders to discuss data protection issues and initiatives. The network is always open to new members. To join the network, simply email the Data Protection Branch with your name, job title, organisation and email address for us to add you to the group. Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Overwhelmingly, attendees of these sessions advocated for broader engagement across Victoria and inclusion of partner groups such as local councils and funded agencies in this network. These partner organisations offer support services to, or on behalf of, Victorian Government.

Staff from public sector organisations and partnering entities are encouraged to attend these free events to gain a better understanding of what the VPDSF means for you and practical measures to secure your information.

N.B. Private Industry partners will be offered different sessions across the course of the year. Stay tuned for these ‘industry’ event details.
