Michael Lee reports:

The finance sector is the most commonly complained about sector in regards to privacy, with the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) revealing in its first annual report how many complaints it receives and how many are actually resolved.

The OAIC draws together the Privacy Commissioner and the new roles of the Australian Information Commissioner and the Freedom of Information Commissioner.
