    • Russell Kennedy, Level 12, 469 La Trobe Street, Melbourne

    On 1 July 2014 Privacy Victoria formally adopted Privacy by Design. This is a series of internationally endorsed policies, approaches and benchmarks designed to integrate privacy with new technology to ensure that perceptions that privacy and the use of new technologies are trade-offs, otherwise known as a zero-sum game, are overcome.

    The Victorian Privacy Commissioner will provide lawyers with insights into how Privacy by Design will work, having regard to the seven Foundational Principles of Privacy by Design.

    Speaker

    David Watts is Victoria's acting Privacy Commissioner and current Commissioner for Law Enforcement Data Security. 

    David's background is as a lawyer who has practised in both the private and public sectors specialising in information technology, information privacy, intellectual property, governance and regulatory systems.

    Before being appointed Commissioner for Law Enforcement Data Security, Mr Watts was Assistant Secretary, Legal Services Branch, of the Department of Health and Ageing in Canberra where he led the development of the regulatory framework to support national e-health initiatives and the national registration and accreditation scheme for the health professions. Before that, he headed the legal branch of the Victorian Department of Human Services where he was closely involved in the development of key social policy-based legislative initiatives including the Children, Youth and Families Act 2005. David has advised a number of State and Territory governments on online and information privacy issues and was the joint architect of the Northern Territory’s Information Act 2002.
