How to help: Australian bushfire relief

We start 2020 with mixed feelings. While data protection issues dominate headlines and policy discussions around the world, many here in Australia are focused on the basic concepts of health and safety as a result of the bushfires that continue to rage across the country.

Our thoughts are with our many colleagues, friends, their families and loved ones, and all of those that have been impacted by or are threatened by the fires. Be safe!

Best regards,

Jim Campbell, Regional Manager, ANZ
