Your Privacy Commissioner
Presenter: Philip Green Queensland Privacy Commissioner
Chair: Stephen Keim SC, Barrister
This presentation will discuss the role of the Queensland Privacy Commissioner. Specifically, Philip Green will tell us when you are likely to encounter the Commissioner, and what you can do to help him in performing his functions when you deal with him.
As part of our “Queensland institutions” series, Philip Green will tell us about the role of the Queensland Privacy Commissioner, priorities and goals over the coming year, and outline more important recent events affecting his office.
Philip Green: Appointed as the Queensland Privacy Commissioner in December 2015, Philip Green has an extensive career in the private and public sectors. Mr Green’s legal career at Allens included commercial banking and finance/insolvency. He has extensive central and agency experience in criminal justice, legal and economic policy at the Department of the Premier and Cabinet in Queensland and a stint in the UK. He has a keen interest in innovation and technology law, and was instrumental in establishing Queensland’s first administrative privacy regime. Since then he has been a keen advocate for privacy law reform to place Queensland in a leadership role in the Asia Pacific region.
Stephen Keim SC became a solicitor in 1978, went to the Bar in 1985 and took silk in 2004. His interest and familiarity with administrative law issues have been fuelled by stints as an anti-discrimination tribunal commissioner, a hearing commissioner for HREOC and time as a member of the Land Court in Queensland. Stephen’s practice as a lawyer, although varied, includes judicial review litigation for both applicants and respondents; merits review in the AAT, QCAT and SACAT; and FOI and RTI litigation.
