Minister for Small Business Michael McCormack has said he is assured of the security steps for Census data that the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) has put in place.
“Whilst there has been breaches … there’s never been a breach of the actual Census data,” McCormack told reporters on Wednesday afternoon.
“Never been a breach, the ABS assures us that this won’t happen into the future with this Census, and governments of all persuasion take that information and assurances on board.
“The ABS has never had a privacy breach with Census data showing, and they have assured me as the minister responsible, they’ve assured the government, that they have every protocol in place, every process in place to ensure that there isn’t a breach this time.”
