Welcome to our fortnightly digest, Privacy News.
ISO privacy standard development
Joanne Knight of the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA) will discuss how to get involved and influence International Standards Organisation (ISO) standard development in our Technology and Privacy Forum on 6 October. She will explain how New Zealand is able to influence global standards to ensure they align with our approach to privacy, including:
- The process for developing an ISO standard
- Privacy standards that are currently under development
- What needs to be done to become involved.
Joanne is a Senior Business Advisor in the Service Innovation unit of DIA. She was involved in the development of New Zealand's Evidence of Identity Standard and is currently the custodian of the Standard, responsible for its ongoing development.
The Technology and Privacy Forum is on at 12pm on Thursday 6 October 2016 at the Office of the Privacy Commissioner, Level 8, 109-111 Featherston St, Wellington. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
