1. You are a senior officer in a Government Department which has in the past had a less than perfect record in relation to privacy protection. The department is operating in an area where client records are involved and any breach of the Privacy Act will subject your agency to a great deal of negative publicity. You are given the task of enhancing the culture of privacy protection. Outline some steps you would take.

2. You are about to create a website for your business. You know that consumer confidence will depend upon your ability to reassure visitors to your site that their privacy expectations will be met. The site is a health site through which you receive personal information about consumers and recommend a course of vitamins and other health measures. Your boss asks you to look into the privacy issue and brief him about any concerns you might have in this area. Provide an outline of such a brief and a rough draft of what your website’s privacy policy might look like.
