Shroff: Recent Report Indicates Need for Strong Leadership
DATA PROTECTION—NEW ZEALANDDecember 6, 2012
Privacy Commissioner Marie Shroff says a recent Deloitte report on the Ministry of Social Development (MSD) “makes it very clear that there is a need for strong leadership by senior management on the way client information is handled within MSD.” The report looked into the data breach at Work and Income’s public access kiosks. Shroff said it’s “not enough” for employees to keep privacy and security in mind; leadership must ensure various parts of the ministry are working together. Meanwhile, MSD plans to roll out new public kiosks in May.
