Privacy and Integrity Legislation

In recent years, with the introduction of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), there has been increased focus on privacy and integrity legislation. Privacy legislation revolves around the processing, storage, and provision of personal data acquired in relationships between organisations and customers or government and citizens. The legislation includes provisions such as the obligation to report data breaches and regulations for whistleblowers.

Both privacy and integrity legislation are highly relevant in the landscape of government sanctioning. Privacy legislation, at times, can pose a barrier to the use of a criminal case file outside criminal law, while integrity screening can have unpleasant consequences after a criminal case.
