VISN Summary & Slides

Victorian Information Security Network (VISN) forums

The VISN was established by the Commissioner for Privacy and Data Protection (CPDP) in 2016 to support the release of the Victorian Protective Data Security Framework (VPDSF) and the formal issue of the Victorian Protective Data Security Standards (VPDSS). 

The purpose of the Victorian Information Security Network (VISN) is to promote the uptake of protective data security standards by the public sector by facilitating dialogue on the Victorian Protective Data Security Framework (VPDSF) and offering a platform for stakeholders to discuss data protection issues and initiatives.

The network centers upon members of the Data Protection Branch helping facilitate conversations across the broader VPS and partner groups, fostering collaboration between interested stakeholders. The VISN also provides the Data Protection Branch (DPB) an opportunity to gain feedback on CPDP led programs and activities, ensuring these offerings meet the needs of our stakeholders.

Throughout our forums audience members are encouraged to ask questions and participate in polls. An online tool (Sli.do) is often used during these sessions, providing attendees an opportunity to digitally engage and ask questions. 

This page will be updated with new content as each forum concludes. This will provide an insight into the topics discussed, the content presented and the sort of questions and feedback that stakeholders are keen to address.

We are looking forward to continuing to deliver more forums over the coming months, so stay tuned for updates!
