Asia flavour this week for privacy buffs

Attorney General Philip Ruddock has been in India, and raised concerns about privacy protection for personal information transferred there as a result of outsourcing decisions by Australian companies. Despite assurances from the services sector that self regulation is working, he's asked that Australian officials have a closer look.

Meanwhile in Canberra, the APEC Data Privacy meeting is underway this week with a public seminar followed by officials meetings later in the week. Don't be disappointed if you missed it - there's another one scheduled for Cairns in May.
