Here be dragons Tim Henwood

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner wants to get in front of the looming tech trends, from wearable devices to AI to drones. But is that the best approach? Following a series of tech-related privacy workshops, the OPC is having second thoughts - maybe it's time to take a step back and tackle a few basics? In this post for IITP's Techblog, our Policy and Technology Team Policy Adviser, Tim Henwood, takes a look at our current thinking.

  • Good question. The answer I am afraid is 'both'. It is essential to get the basics right, but sensible commentary from the regulators the world over in regard to the privacy implications and their management from the proliferation of IoT devices is sadly muted. It requires a sensible conversation between the privacy engineers and the privacy policy/compliance folk that is only just getting under way. If OIC can help fill the void it would be great.
