04 Sep Online Expert Urges NZ to Improve Privacy Efforts
InternetNZ Chief Executive Jordan Carter recently called on the government of New Zealand to improve its data privacy and protection efforts.
Carter clarified that there are currently no laws holding NZ companies accountable for data leaks, which is why the Justice Select Committee has to work with the suggestions submitters have made, and consult on new ideas that people have raised to make the new Privacy Bill fit for the coming years.
The company’s Policy Director, Ellen Strickland, likewise said that no one in the privacy space believes the current privacy law in New Zealand is good for 2018, which is why they are calling for an up-to-date privacy law that is fit for its purpose in the Internet age.
