Ensuring privacy and security of information

We continued our support to improve privacy practice and maturity.

Through our Government Chief Privacy Officer (GCPO) system leadership role we provided coaching and guidance to state sector agencies to upskill their privacy practices and capabilities; and advice about the use and management of personal information. We completed our assessments of these government agencies to measure their privacy maturity and progress towards future privacy maturity goals.

New Zealanders can feel even more confident that their private information held with government agencies is protected and secure. We have continued to act as guardians of much of our nation’s personal information with trust in the public sector reaching an all-time high*.
