Privacy Risk 

Our entity implements a holistic approach to privacy and data protection risk management. 

We liaise with the relevant third party consultants and prepare for assessments by a regulator such as the Office of the Australian Commissioner (“OAIC”) or independent auditor. 

If the cases requires, we will engage in assessing privacy compliance against local Australian regulations such as the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth), as well as global regulations such as the European Union General Data Regulation (“EU GDPR”), China’s cyber security law and any other regulation if required from time to time; 

By implementing such steps and by educating employees, developing awareness strategies throughout our business. We minimise our risk from both governance and operational perspective. Statistics have shown that the greatest risk for data breach comes from internal staff. If required we may implement an organisational culture assessment to demonstrate where the weaknesses are in the entity that may arise from time to time so that we can proactively assess new risks which may emerge.
