NBlog May 7 - [NZ] privacy week

I expect you know already but hey it's privacy week everyone!  Woo-hoo!  


[Cue rockets and Catherine wheels]




Well OK, it's privacy week in New Zealand.





And a short week at that, 5 days not 7.



But who am I to knock it?  We've settled and live here.  We pay our dues.  We have both a personal and proprietary interest in the NZ gummt's privacy and security, and we're doing our level best to ensure that the NZ authorities Get It.  We want the same things.

Don't get me wrong, 5 days of privacy awareness stuff is better than nothing ... but hang on, isn't this the month that GDPR comes into effect?  Isn't this privacy month?  Couldn't the week have at least been moved to coincide with the GDPR deadline, leveraging the global news coverage of privacy matters?

Oh well.

Here's Dilbert's take.
