This year, data privacy emerged as a key material issue for Wesfarmers and its businesses. Wesfarmers is committed to complying with the laws and regulations of the countries in which its businesses operate and act in an ethical manner, consistent with the principles of honesty, integrity, fairness and respect. This includes complying with the Australian Privacy Act and all relevant legislation.
We have systems and procedures in place to protect customer and employee information and acknowledge that privacy protection requires ongoing significant resources. This remains a high priority.
During the year we continued to implement a number of controls to minimise risk, including enhanced monitoring and vulnerability testing of our systems and procedures.
