Calling all privacy professionals JLB
9 October 2014

Are you a practising privacy specialist who provides consultancy services, legal advice or training in privacy? Or perhaps you are a privacy commentator and advocate?  

We are calling for registrations for a new Directory of Privacy Professionals on our website. It is intended to help people identify and contact specialist privacy advice and resources in New Zealand who work independently of our office.

People listed here could, for example, give advice and guidance on a full range of privacy related subjects. These include privacy impact assessments, privacy by design, privacy health checks, data breach management, IT and data security, privacy advocacy/dispute resolution, privacy investigations, legal advice, training or privacy comment. We also see it as a useful resource for journalists seeking comment on emerging and day-to-day privacy issues.

Registration is by individuals, not by company or organisation. You must have demonstrable privacy qualifications, knowledge and experience, and be New Zealand based. We intend to widen the directory at a later date to also include overseas privacy specialists who provide a service in New Zealand. To get the directory started, we are first inviting local registrations. 

We hope the directory will also assist in building a knowledgeable and accessible community of privacy practitioners in New Zealand. There’s been a very good response to the project with a number of early applications already received. There’s more information about the directory here.
