Leaders To Meet This Month
PRIVACY—NEW ZEALANDDecember 3, 2010
Privacy Commissioner Marie Shroff will next week host privacy leaders from the Asia-Pacific region to discuss the latest international data protection issues. The Asia Pacific Privacy Authorities (APPA) Forum on 6 December will, for the first time, include representatives from the U.S. Federal Trade Commission and Mexico. The forum will look at Web 2.0 technologies and privacy regulation; direct marketing and privacy; credit reporting and privacy, and international cross-border privacy enforcement. Shroff said that having the forum, including its new members, together in New Zealand for the first time "should generate some interesting discussions." Before the APPA forum meets, representatives from the recently established APEC Cross-Border Privacy Enforcement Arrangement will meet.
