This paper will examine how legal considerations arising from the aggregation of data impact upon technical access control mechanisms. Research findings are based on a multi-disciplinary investigation of security issues regarding the aggregation of data in a governmental federated database system. The researchers conclude that the development of a federated architecture must consider technical security concerns within the context of legal risk management issues. As such, a holistic approach to the investigation of information security is required that incorporates the disciplines of information technology and law.
