PRIVACY IMPACT ASSESSMENT
Since 2015, the Australian government has been investing millions of dollars into the development
of a National Facial Biometric Matching Capability to harness the power of facial recognition
technology in the fight against identity crimes.
A number of Privacy Impact Assessments have been undertaken for different parts and at various
stages of this project.
For this assessment task you will review the following PIA for the Interoperability Hub from 2015:
Information Integrity Solutions. (2015). National Facial Biometric Matching Capability
Privacy Impact Assessment—Interoperability Hub. Attorney-General’s Department. August
Attorney-General’s Department. (2015). Attorney-General’s Department Response to
Preliminary Privacy Impact Assessment of the National Facial Biometric Matching
Capability. December 2015.
Using these and any additional sources, address each of the questions in the PIA Review
Worksheet that is available on the unit’s Moodle site.
You should answer the questions in your own words, in the form of well-constructed paragraphs
and sentences that demonstrate your critical research and writing skills. Your answers must
include appropriate quoting, citing and referencing of sources. You may also include diagrams as
appropriate, but if not your own then need to be appropriately referenced and explained in your

as one’s own, e.g. by failing to give appropriate acknowledgement. Specifically, it occurs when a student:
paraphrases other people’s work and/or ideas without a reference to the source;
copies other people’s work in whole or in part;
presents other people’s designs, codes or images as their own work;
appropriates cultural artefacts without permission and/or appropriate acknowledgement;
uses exactly the same phrases, passages or structure without quotation marks and/or without a
reference to the source; or
reproduces provided lecture notes without acknowledgement. 学霸联盟
