IoT Security Institute Executive Director for Privacy and Data Protection, Nicole Stephensen joins leading Australian privacy and data privacy law experts in recommending the Australian Government's legislation should ensure an appropriate independent agency has oversight of data the COVIDSafe app generates, including ensuring all state and territory agencies maintain a functional separation of the data from other systems.

Spearheaded by Peter Leonard, a team of leading Australian privacy professionals and academics consider that more is needed to ensure community trust in uptake of the COVIDsafe contact tracing app at this crucial time in pandemic management. They argue that there is a strong public purpose in both deploying a contact tracing app and ensuring meaningful and consistent controls around what happens to personal information of the community.
The team that includes IoTSI Executive Director for Privacy & Data Protection, Nicole Stephensen, has put together a paper for the Australian Government identifying key opportunities to address community privacy protection and matters of ‘shared risk’ impacting the States and Territories who will access COVIDsafe data for contact tracing purposes.
The paper makes pragmatic recommendations to support the Government’s promised final legislation for the contact tracing app and data store.
This paper is presently with the Attorney-General's Department, with the awareness of the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner and the Human Rights Commissioner. A PDF copy is attached here for reference.
IoTSI proudly supports strong public policy in cyber and privacy matters involving IoT and digital technologies.
