Facebook, Amazon Support Changes to NZ Privacy Bill

Facebook and Amazon are reportedly proposing some changes to New Zealand’s privacy bill, along with local companies that are seeking for the inclusion of the “right to be forgotten” in the draft law.

Even after thumbing its nose at the country’s privacy law, Facebook is now suggesting changes to the Bill’s proposed mandatory data breach notification be comparable with those from other countries so that  organizations which have already developed processes and procedures can adopt a uniform approach.

Amazon Web Services also requested for the same changes, but focused on particular issues cloud service providers (CSPs) such as AWS will face with the data breach notification regime. AWS’s Simon Edwards said that they are asking that the responsibility be given to the person with both the ability and the incentive to take action to protect such information, such as the customer.
