Content may be king, but privacy is paramount!

Marketing and research are highly reliant on the trust of the Australian community. When engaging with a brand or product, consumers, notably research respondents undertaking opinion polling, surveys and focus groups, expect their personal details to be protected and used only by following Australia’s privacy laws. If at any time that public trust is broken, negative consequences can affect an entire industry, damage the largest corporations and seriously harm an individual.

  • How can Marketers mitigate risk?
  • What is a notifiable data breach?
