The protection of peoples’ privacy and the security is paramount for the Agency.
The Agency has significantly invested in capability and capacity in privacy and cyber security with over 100 operations staff working around the clock on security and privacy monitoring and protections.
Additionally, the Agency has a dedicated cyber security operations team and specialist cell of cyber security threat intelligence analysts.
These functions come together in an experienced and well-resourced privacy and security function, which is dedicated to delivering on our statutory obligations and building exemplary standards in privacy and security.
The Agency’s privacy activities are independently assessed by the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner. To date the Agency has never received an adverse finding from this independent oversight.
Out of respect for the privacy of staff, the Agency does not discuss individual members of staff in media responses.
