DGA establishes enforceable industry standards – the Code of Practice – and sets benchmarks around the collection, use and management of data in Australia. These standards are about being the champions for responsible data use while allowing business to drive innovation and growth.
In signing up to the Code of Practice, DGA members affirm their commitment and as such, are able to wear the DGA Trust Mark. Providing consumers with a visible symbol of a quality and businesses with a clear differentiator.
DGA members are represented at the highest levels of government, in the interest of ensuring that Australia maintains a self-regulatory and innovative data environment.
Ensuring that DGA members affirm their commitment to and align with Code of Practice is a major part of our work.
With vast amounts of data generated via the increasing number of connected devices, new methods and technologies need to be implemented for data security and protection. This is where the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) steps in.
