Australian Data-Sharing Legislation ‘Significantly Misaligned’, Researchers Say

Researchers from the University of Melbourne called out this week the Australian government’s proposed data-sharing legislation, labelling it was “significant misalignment” that prioritizes the perceived greater good over respecting the individual’s minimal rights.  

The researchers highlighted that ‘consent’, a central tenet to best privacy practices, did not even appear once in the proposal.

The submission, written by Dr. Chris Culnane, acting Professor Benjamin Rubinstein, and Dr. Vanessa Teague, also suggests that the government improve the legislation by adopting provisions from the GDPR.
