1. New Zealand Privacy Commissioner Launches Draft Security Breach Guidelines

New Zealand Privacy Commissioner Marie Shroff has published a draft guide to help the public and private sectors manage security breaches. The voluntary guidelines recommend a four-stage approach:

Shroff is considering whether New Zealand should adopt a mandatory breach notification law.
