Tuesday 29 Oct 2019 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.

Friday 25 Oct 2019 Unauthorised access and disclosure of information held by the Victorian public sector
Public sector agencies manage a wide range of information. This includes personal health records and contact details as well as sensitive political and economic information and financial data. The appropriate handling and security of this information is imperative. Unauthorised access and disclosure of data and information undermines the credibility of the public sector and jeopardises trust in government agencies to responsibly manage public information and ensure personal information is managed carefully and securely.
