CHANGES TO PRIVACY AND INFORMATION SHARING : HOW IT AFFECTS YOU Information sharing within the public sector became a huge focus following the tragic death of Luke Batty, and subsequently formed a large part of the Royal Commission into Family Violence. Since the Royal Commission, the Victorian Government has allocated significant resources to improving information sharing between government. Join VWL, together with Russell Kennedy Lawyers for an exciting panel discussion moderated by Rachel Dixon, Privacy and Data Protection Deputy Commissioner, that will bring audience members up to speed with the changes and how information is best and appropriately shared.
