Privacy Engineering Guidelines Presentation

A presentation to the Australian Information Security Association annual seminar day 2007.

The presentation introduces the idea of Privacy Engineering Guidelines, as a fresh attempt to alert information technologists to the subtleties of privacy protection and compliance. Our work indicates that one impediment to IT people properly embracing privacy protection is that they have been led to believe that privacy is "not a technology issue". We tackle the faddish and dangerous technology neutral attitude by exposing how privacy principles impinge on a great range of IT concerns, including data base design, audit logging, web GUIs and so on.
