Data breach notification law in the EU and Australia : where to now?
Burdon, Mark, Lane, Bill, & von Nessen, Paul (2012) Data breach notification law in the EU and Australia : where to now? Computer Law and Security Review, 28(3), pp. 296-307.
Mandatory data breach notification laws have been a significant legislative reform in response to unauthorized disclosures of personal information by public and private sector organizations. These laws originated in the state-based legislatures of the United States during the last decade and have subsequently garnered worldwide legislative interest. We contend that there are conceptual and practical concerns regarding mandatory data breach notification laws which limit the scope of their applicability, particularly in relation to existing information privacy law regimes. We outline these concerns here, in the light of recent European Union and Australian legal developments in this area.
