Summary The expansion of the internet has brought with it a huge increase in the number of instances of personal information sent by businesses and governments from one jurisdiction to another. Concern arising out of Europe, in particular, over the adequacy of data protection measures in many jurisdictions around the world has resulted in increasing international pressure being applied to those countries not meeting adequacy requirements. This paper examines the nature and effect of this pressure particularly on Australian business and government.
