Serious or repeated breaches of personal privacy can be prosecuted by the Commissioner in the Federal Court and Federal Magistrates Court. Corporations found in breach of privacy laws can face monetary penalties of up to $1.1 million and non-corporate entities can face monetary penalties of up to $220,000.
Section 4AA of the Crimes Act 1914 has been amended to increase the amount of a penalty unit from $110 to $170. This means that the maximum penalty amount will be $340,000 for individuals and $1.7 million for entities.
Although the majority of the reforms to the privacy laws will not commence until March 2014, organisations should use this transition period to revise and update their privacy policies. Procedures and contracts of entities handling personal information should also be reviewed promptly to ensure a seamless transition to, and compliance with, the new privacy laws.
