Abstract

This paper reports on the creation of a database to share information about children at risk without compromising their right to privacy when stored on government and non-government agency databases. The new concept database was created in conjunction with the Midland Interagency Group in Perth, Australia that brought together the Midvale Primary School, government and non-government agencies, involved in the care or support of children at risk attending the school. However, this Interagency group had a problem - how could it share information online about urgent situations without compromising children's privacy? In conjunction with the Interagency group, the researchers built a prototype database (based partly on Moor's theory of privacy) to help solve this problem.
