Welcome from the Australian Information and Privacy Commissioner


The public and commercial promise of data innovation has never been greater, with businesses and government agencies continuing to harness personal information to develop new products and services.

Unsurprisingly, public interest and expectations about how personal information is used also continues to rise. Managing the nexus between data innovation, privacy and consumer trust has now become a defining issue for both public and private sector innovations.

Responding to this challenge requires solutions that bring public and private sector together, and to support this, my office is proud to host the Data + Privacy Asia Pacific conference.

The Data + Privacy Asia Pacific conference immediately follows the 47th Asia Pacific Privacy Authorities (APPA) Forum, which brings the Asia Pacific's leading data regulators to Sydney, and gives you the opportunity to engage with key decision makers, data innovators and privacy professionals on the front line of these emerging technologies and projects.

The conference will set the agenda on the latest privacy and data protection topics and trends as well as deliver key insights into upcoming regulations and policy developments.

There has never been a better time to learn from leading experts and spark new approaches to good privacy practice, so I look forward to welcoming you at the Data + Privacy Asia Pacific conference in July.
