About this Unit
This unit examines the operation of information technology for online data collection, information privacy and data governance laws and regulation. The unit focuses on the right to privacy, the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and the free movement of such data and the legal framework for information protection. The framework for information privacy and data governance is established by both international and domestic law and regulation. The unit introduces the basic legal framework for information privacy protection and governance under the European Union’s Commission, the OECD Guidelines for the Protection of Privacy and Trans-Border Flows of Personal data and under the Australian Privacy protection framework. The unit compares the information governance policy and framework in the European Union and the United States with that in Australia.
