Burning Platforms – Privacy isn’t boring: Online Privacy in Australia

October 8, 2021


With a review of the Privacy Act expected soon, and the Facebook whistleblower revealing Facebook’s privacy breaches among other things, we take a deep dive into the legal frameworks for entrenching digital data rights into Australian law. From informed consent to data matching and security, is the traditional approach to privacy applicable to the online world?

Regular panellists:

  • Peter Lewis, Former Director of The Australia Institute’s Centre for Responsible Technology
  • Lizzie O’ Shea, Chair of Digital Rights Watch

And special guests:

  • Anna Johnston, Director at Salinger Privacy
  • David Swan, journalist at The Australian


Burning Platforms is brought to you by the Centre of the Public Square – an initiative of Per Capita.
