This background paper is concerned with ensuring the integrity of Australia’s e-court processes through the development of information protection standards and protocols. The integrity of the court process is important to the national interest because businesses and citizens depend on the certainty of court decisions, naturally assuming that their information and privacy is protected. This paper is a catalyst for future research leading to the creation of an information protection framework, including policies and standards enabling courts to define the use of courtroom technologies, thus ensuring that their design and application is grounded within established information protection principles. Without substantiation of the quality of technological structures and processes used by ecourts, the system of certainty upon which the courts and law are based has the potential to become inherently uncertain.

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.
