Frequently asked questions


A number of funded organisations have contacted the Office of the Victorian Information Commissioner (OVIC) or the Department of Health and Human Services seeking clarification regarding their Victorian Protective Data Security Standards (VPDSS) compliance and reporting obligations. 

Please note, funded organisations are not required to directly report to OVIC, or complete the VPDSS compliance documents published on the OVIC website.

The department has prepared FAQs to provide clarity about the VPDSS and the requirements for funded organisations.
