ACC Privacy Breach Report released

ACC’s report to Minister Judith Collins has now been released.

It is apparent that there was a massive media overreaction now the full details have emerged. It is still bad that someone made this error, and I am sure that they are truly remorseful.

What is also in the report is that the person who received this data, also tried to extort ACC.

The outrage is not the breach of privacy, which now on the face of it was mild, but trather that this person tried to extort a guaranteed benefit payment for two years and threatened ACC with release of the data.

Hopefully Police will now prosecute the person.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
