Our Experience

Our extensive government client base means we have provided privacy advice across a range of issues.

There are two areas where Proximity really excels:

  • Our Advisors are strategic and pragmatic problem solvers, and provide sensible and realistic services and advice to meet an agency’s particular need and reduce the risk of ongoing privacy breaches
  • We have undertaken Privacy Impact Assessments for a wide range of organisations, including government-owned bodies that operate in the commercial space.

Skills and expertise

Our expert Advisors will help you resolve privacy breach problems in a conscientious and pragmatic manner, and triage multiple privacy problems daily. For example:

  • Working at Joint Health Command (Department of Defence) and on the My Health Record system, we advised on the collection, use, storage and release of sensitive information related to electronic health records, biometric data, and on the business processes involved in transferring electronic health record data
  • Working with Services Australia, where vast amounts of personal and sensitive information are stored, our privacy teams provided practical legal advice fast, and on a daily basis.

We can work with your privacy teams to review the handling of personal information in a variety of contexts.

This includes the using and sharing of personal information within your agency, and externally with government agencies or research organisations.

We have particular expertise in providing privacy advice and undertaking Privacy Impact Assessments when a major Information Technology (IT) upgrade or framework transition involves stored personal and sensitive information.
