Unauthorised access and disclosure of public sector information
Unauthorised access and disclosure of public sector information are forms of information misuse and may constitute corrupt conduct. These activities can also enable other corrupt conduct.

Managing corruption risks associated with conflicts of interest in the Victorian public sector
Most public sector officers will experience a conflict of interest at some point in their careers. While conflicts should be avoided wherever possible, the existence of a conflict of interest in itself is not necessarily a problem nor inherently corrupt. However, the risk of corruption occurs when individuals and their organisations fail to properly and actively identify, declare and manage a conflict in the public interest. This report outlines opportunities to strengthen the identification, disclosure and management of conflicts of interest across the public sector. Some good practice is also highlighted.
