Privacy data security hits home

After banging on this for the past couple of days, its entirely coincidental that two Australian data security stories hit the headlines yesterday.

At least Australia Post, after “losing” 615 passport applications, found them after a week and reassured those concerned that they’d never left the premises.

On the other hand the Queensland Government has the problem of looking for an explanation how personal documents including birth certificates, wills, blank bank cheques and other documents from various government departments, including the Attorney General’s office, were sold for paper recycling without being shredded first.

Tips of icebergs?
