Public lecture by the Australian Privacy Commissioner, Mr Timothy Pilgim

Monday, 23 May 2016


Australian Privacy Commissioner, Mr Timothy Pilgrim will visit Perth in May to support a series of privacy awareness and consultation events in Western Australia.

ECU are delighted to host the Privacy Commissioner when he delivers a free public address on 30th May 2016, and encourage West Australians to join us for your chance to hear, and discuss, the latest developments in Australian privacy.

Timothy was first appointed to the former Office of the Privacy Commissioner as Deputy Privacy Commissioner in February 1998. He previously held senior management positions in a range of Australian Government agencies, including the Australian Taxation Office and the Child Support Agency.  He continues to work closely with privacy authorities locally and internationally to ensure that Australia and the Asia Pacific region are equipped to deal with global privacy challenges.

Timothy has made significant contributions to the field of privacy in Australia. His achievements include developing and implementing the private sector provisions of the Privacy Act 1988 in 2001. He also led the implementation of the 2014 reforms to the Privacy Act, the most significant reforms to the Act since its commencement.

In 2015, Timothy was recognised for his work in privacy and awarded the Public Service Medal in the the Australia Day Honours List for ‘outstanding public service in the development and implementation of major reforms to the Privacy Act 1988’.

In this lecture, the Privacy Commissioner will speak of the modern-day interactions between privacy governance, technology and trust.  Professor Craig Valli, Director of ECU’s Security Research Institute, will then facilitate further discussion, and questions from the floor.  We invite you to join us for what is sure to be an informative evening.
