Data should stay in New Zealand

that it doesn't matter where data is stored so long as privacy risks are understood and mitigated. We strongly disagree.

Any data sent out of New Zealand is subject to greater risk than if it was kept onshore.

As outsiders, kiwi companies and organisations are at a disadvantage when trying to protect data that is sent overseas.

As non-citizens, there's less protection for us, and less bargaining power.

Sure, it's a good idea to understand and minimise risk, but in other jurisdictions like like Australia, Singapore or the US, there are very different ideas about privacy, security and whether it's ethical to take control of someone else's data........
