Once more unto the breach dear friends....

The Australian Attorney-General's office has released the long-awaited Australian Privacy Breach Notification discussion paper [pdf]

It seems to be generating interesting discussion both for and against.

I have commented previously on data breach legislation and haven't really changed my view. The only thing I'd add is that maybe the 'public shaming' fallout isn't as bad as it used to be, simply as the result of so many companies being hacked.

It is interesting that Information Security is back on the political agenda in Australia, as it is to in the United States with President Obama considering using an executive order to reinstate the "Cybersecurity" bill that was previously defeated in the US Senate. Probably not surprising though, as it is an election year....

I haven't read the AG's discussion paper in detail yet, but will hopefully get to it this weekend and provide my thoughts.
