5 Key Changes to the Privacy Act 2020

Do you want to keep pace with NZ’s largest privacy reforms in over 20 years?

The Privacy Act 2020 will take effect on 1 December. The privacy reforms modernised legislation to keep up with changing technology.

  • New criminal offences and increased penalties for breaches
  • Mandatory notification of harmful privacy breaches
  • Additional powers for the Privacy Commissioner, including compliance notices
  • Controls on disclosure of information overseas
  • Key updates to the information privacy principles
