Breach Victim Unsatisfied with Response
DATA LOSS—NEW ZEALANDMay 25, 2012
The Dominion Post reports that a victim of multiple ACC privacy breaches is disappointed that no action has taken place to change the organisation's data handling practices. The privacy commissioner is investigating the agency, and according to a letter to the victim from Assistant Commissioner of Investigations Mike Flahive, if the agency's practices are not up to Privacy Act standards, it would be dealt with through "an agreement with the commissioner," the report states. The victim has received apology letters from the company but says, "Had they listened to the concerns of complainants way back, then we may not have been in the position we are in now."
