Anti-terrorist police to use congestion charge cameras

Anti-terrorist police will be able to use London’s congestion charge cameras and automatic number-plate recognition system routinely and in real-time to track suspect vehicles throughout the city centre.

Identity Linkage and Privacy article reprinted in IAPP

My article originally published by ISSA (April 2007) is now available as a reprint in the Privacy Advisor (July 2007) which is the newsletter for IAPP -International Association of Privacy Professionals.

It is the first time I’ve read their newsletter which itself looks pretty good. (Apart from the fact my article with my photo is on the front page :-)) It is full of latest information on legislation concerning privacy… and not just in the US but in the copy I had, for Australia, Canada, EU, France, Spain, UK and Australia. I expected it to be US bias but it was in fact not.

IAPP are worth considering for membership if you are pursuing a career in the area of privacy -if you have not done so already.
