Governments & Businesses should agree basic privacy laws

Google’s Privacy Cheif Peter Fleischer has told a UN agency meeting that Governments and businesses should agree soe basic laws of privacy to protect individual.

With so much information being passed around via the internet each day many laws, where they exist, are out of date with many people confused as to what their rights are, count me in on that one!

However, Mr Fleischer did point to the APEC agreement that is in place between countries ranging from Australia to Vietnam. The  guidelines have nine principles that aim to protect the individual and safeguard data collection. If these countries can agree ‘cross border’ laws then the rest of the world should be able to do so as well.

Google recently changed their own Privacy laws to be more in line with Yahoo! and auto-delete two years after a user’s last visit to its site.
