How Data Discovery Helps Businesses Stay Compliant with the Australian Privacy Act

In an effort to regulate data privacy and respect the rights of individuals, Australia has enacted a patchwork of territorial privacy acts. The overarching law that governs the continent is the Australian Federal Privacy Act 1988, also known as the Privacy Act or the “Australian GDPR.” Since 1988, this legislation has undergone over 80 revisions that incorporate various updates and amendments. The Privacy Act is intended to serve as a guide for how organizations should handle the data of Australian citizens.
