Versey Reflects on Tenure
PRIVACY—VICTORIAOctober 14, 2011
ZDNet reports on comments made by outgoing Victorian Privacy Commissioner Helen Versey. With 10 years of experience within Privacy Victoria and more than four years served as privacy commissioner, Versey reflects on changes in the privacy landscape during her tenure, saying that Victorian agencies have had a "patchy" adherence to the Information Privacy Principles. "Some organisations have embraced their responsibilities, but there are still some that clearly simply see the act as an irritation that should be afforded the barest resources," Versey said. "The organisations which are most successful in embracing the privacy principles are those where there is leadership from the top and where sufficient resources are given to privacy and privacy awareness within the organisation."
