Audit of privacy and mobile apps
On Tuesday August 22, we tabled our report in Parliament on how three Queensland government agencies meet their obligations under the Information Privacy Act 2009 (Qld) when developing and operating mobile apps. Australians are becoming more discerning about privacy, and want to be able to choose the personal information they provide and how it is used, including in mobile apps. Government agencies need to design mobile apps with privacy in mind.
Our audit identified good practice and areas of improvement, and made recommendations for all government agencies.
