In a recent speech, Rikkie-Lee Tyrrell, member of the Legislative Council, expressed her concerns about the government's ability to manage sensitive information and protect citizens' privacy in the wake of large-scale data breaches in the private sector.
Mrs. Tyrrell emphasized her primary concern for busy Victorians who may be most affected by the government's potential mishandling of personal information. She pointed out that many Victorians may not even be aware of the potential implications of this bill until it's too late.
Mrs. Tyrrell also expressed concern about the potential data leaks of sensitive information, especially for the younger generations who have yet to be diagnosed with personal issues. She believes that forcing people to entrust their sensitive information to the government without any real guarantee of security is inadequate and could lead to potential violations.
Mrs. Tyrrell supports Mr Limbrick and his proposed amendments and believes that if this legislation is beneficial, Victorians should have the right to opt in on their own terms. She encourages the government to take citizens' concerns seriously and to prioritize their privacy and security.
In conclusion, Mrs. Tyrrell’s speech underscores the need for greater transparency and accountability from the government to ensure that Victorians' sensitive information is managed with the utmost care and protection.
