NZ gets new assistant privacy commissioner

Jon Duffy has been appointed to the role of Assistant Commissioner, Policy and Operations.

Duffy is currently Head of Trust and Safety at Trade Me, where he deals with consumer and compliance issues. He has held that role since 2011, and during this time oversaw the restructure and expansion of Trade Me’s Trust and Safety function in 2016.

He has worked in a regulatory role at the Commerce Commission and in the establishment of the Real Estate Agents Authority.

“Jon brings a mix of practical and consumer focused expertise,” said Privacy Commissioner John Edwards.

Duffy is also an advisory board member for CERT NZ, and is a board member of Consumer NZ, and board member and deputy chair of Netsafe.

“Jon’s experience in working with these consumer protection and information technology networks will enhance our efforts to safeguard consumers and citizens across the economy,” said Edwards.

Duffy is expected to take up his new role at the Privacy Commissioner’s Office in mid July 2018.
