Au: Victoria’s child protection department misled watchdogs after sex offender Alex Jones CRISSP data breach

Josie Taylor and ABC Investigations’ Sarah Curnow report:

Victorian child protection authorities misled the state’s privacy watchdog during an investigation of a data breach involving a sex offender and dozens of vulnerable children, telling the Office of the Victorian Information Commissioner it had contacted all affected children when it had not.

The state’s commissioner for children and young people says she is also making fresh enquiries with the Department of Families, Fairness and Housing (DFFH) after having been “reassured” more than two years ago that all children whose personal details were accessed by the offender had been contacted.
