Opinion: We've Failed on Internet Safety, Time for Change
ONLINE PRIVACY—AUSTRALIAJune 4, 2010
The Australian interviews Alastair MacGibbon, inaugural chief of the Australian High Tech Crime Centre and managing partner of Surete Group, a safety and trust consulting firm. MacGibbon describes why Internet safety has historically been back burnered and how to handle it moving forward. The "increased blurring" of the online and offline worlds, says MacGibbon, means that "we need to make sure our laws are written in such a way that an individual offline is treated the same way online." MacGibbon also discusses online banking, social networking, and why Australia needs data breach notification.
