Members meet-ups: February 2016

InternetNZ members are invited to one or more of our members meet-ups for the first part of 2016.  The point of these get-togethers is to give members the chance to mix and mingle with each other and with staff. We will share ideas about InternetNZ's work and future plans, and sometimes talk through some issues that rate a bit higher on the trickiness scale. Some nibbles and light refreshments will be provided. 

Staff will be bringing two items in particular to the table for these sessions:
  • InternetNZ's "focus areas" for 2016; and

Solving Digital Divides Together

Some New Zealanders are experiencing digital divides, and are excluded from meaningful use of the Internet. We are failing our most vulnerable by not ensuring everyone can benefit from the Internet. InternetNZ has released this position paper to call for a target for New Zealand of Universal Access and as a starting point to encourage action and collaboration from government, civil society, business, academia and the technology sector, to work together to reduce the effects of digital divides in New Zealand.

Privacy Bill Submission

InternetNZ welcomes the Privacy Bill

InternetNZ welcomes the Privacy Bill as a long-awaited update to New Zealand’s current privacy law.

Privacy is a human right, and applies online just as it does offline. New Zealanders see privacy as a key Internet issue. In 2016 and 2017, our research showed that 70% of New Zealanders were concerned about threats to personal data online. More recently, stories about Cambridge Analytica, and attention on Europe's General Data Protection Regulation, have shown that privacy concerns cross borders, in ways that affect New Zealanders.
