Privacy by Design incorporates privacy from the planning stage rather than tacking it on at the end.
What is privacy, REALLY?
What is 'Privacy by Design'?
A number of recent initiatives in Australia have included Privacy by Design as part of more comprehensive strategies to respect privacy. These include the health identifier being issued for all Australians.
The jury might be out, but in my view Privacy by Design is not an oxymoron. It does take a clear mind and persistence to achieve, with rewards for all, including the financial bottom line. But we have more to do!
