OPC Newsletter Highlights Key Issues
PRIVACY—NEW ZEALANDSeptember 27, 2012
The most recent edition of the Officer of the Privacy Commissioner's Private Word highlights several current issues in the privacy sphere. The lead story in the newsletter is an interview with Privacy Commissioner Marie Shroff on the recent ACC breaches. “Data breaches can happen easily--especially in today's digital environment. But, while the investigation showed that the ACC privacy breach was a genuine human error, it occurred due to systemic weaknesses within ACC's culture, systems and processes,” Shroff notes. The issue also includes reports on proposed credit reporting changes and credit code workshops as well as Privacy Forum highlights.
