IIS leads public and private sector organisations to think through the practical implications of law reform proposals impacting on privacy. Often at issue is ensuring regulation of personal information management keeps up with emerging new business models. IIS is often invited to draft submissions on Bills and other legislative proposals or provide Privacy Impact Assessments on proposed new laws.
