The Coalition needs to act on data breach laws

The Coalition now has a narrow window to introduce laws that will force companies to report data breaches. Though, courage will be needed to implement these necessary reforms, as they are not in the immediate interest of the business community.

Recent events in Queensland and Indonesia are a timely reminder that the new Government will be faced with a tough decision when the 44th Parliament opens on 12 November 2013.

Will the Coalition government become the champion of privacy and security for all Australians in the digital world or will it succumb to lobbying by business advocates for the Privacy Alerts Bill 2013 to be consigned to history.
