With the impending revisions to the privacy laws, this is exactly the place Australian business is about to find itself. If you have a breach today the best advice is to patch up the damage, redecorate and tell no-one. Within a couple of months however it will be as if there is a virtual TV crew around all the time, and businesses won't have a choice about having to admit their failure to protect personal information.
Unsurprisingly, vendors are having a field day promoting the new privacy laws, trying to sell umbrellas, wallpaper and camera blinding equipment. Personally I think businesses should just build a watertight roof and stop the leaks happening in the first place.
