In this episode of The Privacy Advisor Podcast, New Zealand Privacy Commissioner John Edwards discusses the privacy landscape in New Zealand and ongoing updates to the country's privacy law of 1993. Th regulator is unique in that he does not have fining powers, but he says that's working just fine. Edwards also discusses what he says are necessary reforms to the way social media platforms respond to modern-day terrorist attacks. Specifically, he's frustrated with Facebook's response to the attacks on two of the country's mosques, after the terrorist live-streamed the act and the company took nearly 30 minutes to remove it.
