John Edwards - NZRise privacy fireside chat

[cross posted from NZ Rise "The Privacy Bill and candid insights from our Privacy Commissioner" for which we recorded this episode]

NZ Rise kindly asked us to record their May 2018 "Privacy fireside chat" with the wonderful John Edwards, NZ Privacy Commissioner, and the silky tones of Miki Szikszai (Snapper CEO).

Inspired by the Privacy Commissioner John Edwards and his straight talking, aspirational goals for New Zealand citizens, NZRise submitted our perspective on the proposed Privacy Bill – see below.

NZRise Privacy Bill submission – NZRise – Submission on the Privacy Bill (May 2018)

Below is an overview of our submission:

We support the Bill. However, we believe that the changes in the Bill do not go far enough. We support the additional changes proposed by the Privacy Commissioner in his 2016 report. We also propose a number of other changes designed to align the Bill more closely with the GDPR, about to come into force in the European Union.
