This year marks 25 years of New Zealand’s Privacy Act. So, this Privacy Week businesses, organisations and agencies are discussing their responsibilities and obligations when it comes to protecting our personal information.
Tools change: values remain
The Office of the Privacy Commissioner is celebrating 25 years of the Privacy Act by promoting the fact that good privacy means a culture of respect. If your organisation is up-to-date with privacy, then you’re doing all you can to prevent data breaches and to build trust with your customers and the public.
Have your say about the Privacy Act
This Privacy Week is also encouraging the public to contribute to the biggest reform to New Zealand’s Privacy Act in 25 years. The Justice Select Committee is now accepting your submissions on how they can improve the Privacy Bill 2018. This could mean changes to the Bill that affect your business, so don’t miss this opportunity to have your say.
Get in quick and make your submission here – the deadline is Thursday, 24 May 2018!
