Privacy Impact Assessment and Control Guidelines

Privacy is considered a basic right or freedom that a person should be able to enjoy, like a right to be left alone or to be free from unnecessary intrusion into one’s personal life. It also has immense normative value, and what it means to “have privacy” can be talked about in terms of a person’s home or the physical territory they occupy, their body, their communications and their information.


Ensuring Drone Privacy & Cyber Protection utilising the IoTSI Framework

Emerging technologies such as 4G/5G networks have significant potential on UAVs equipped with cameras, sensors, and GPS receivers in delivering Internet of Things (IoT) services from great heights, creating an airborne domain of the IoT.
However, there are many issues to be resolved before the effective use of UAVs can be made, including security, privacy, and management.

Drones and the Privacy Principles

Drone deployment within a Smart City context requires consideration of the appropriate privacy and regulatory legislation within a given jurisdiction. The following is an "guideline" produced by the Office of the Information Commissioner - Queensland, Australia

Drones are playing an increasing role in government service delivery. Potential uses include law enforcement, emergency and disaster management, infrastructure inspections and environmental monitoring.  
Queensland government agencies which capture video and audio recordings using a drone must ensure that their collection, storage, use and disclosure of the recording complies with the privacy obligations in the Information Privacy Act 2009 (Qld) (IP Act).
