Submission to the Senate Finance and Public Administration Committee - Circumstances in which Australians’ personal information has been compromised and made available for sale illegally on the ‘dark web’


Summary

Date: 31 August 2017

The RACGP takes the issue of patient privacy and confidentiality very seriously.

The news that personal Medicare data of Australians was compromised and made available for sale by a dark net trader was deeply concerning to us and our submission supports the Government's initiatives to improve the safety of Australians’ Medicare information.
