OAIC Guide

Privacy is getting more and more attention in Australia, with the Privacy Commissioner recently stating:

"Information security is clearly a significant privacy issue and has emerged as a major challenge for us all. These incidents tell us that 'privacy by design' is essential. Organisations need to build privacy into business as usual practices and new projects"
As part of this most recent push, the OAIC recently released their Guide to Information Security [pdf].

While there's nothing groundbreaking in the document for a security professional, it's encouraging to see the Government pushing for businesses to improve their information security and providing this kind of document as a starting point.

Will it make much difference in the long run? Time will tell. Perhaps, combined with the proposed data breach laws, although the effectiveness of such laws is subject to debate...
