This paper is concerned with the integrity of Australia’s e-court processes. The safe and effective functioning of the e-court process is important because all groups in society depend on and adhere to court judgements. Accordingly, e-court industry standards and best-practice guidelines should reflect a rigorous information protection perspective based upon sound information security principles. American e-courts are more advanced than their Australian counterparts. This paper examines existing information protection guidelines in the USA with a view to their potential application in Australian e-courts. A brief comparison of the underlying American and Australian philosophies regarding the use of ICT and information protection in e-courts is undertaken. The authors conclude by showing how an e-filing standard could be developed within an information protection framework that is specific to Australian e-courts.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
