Public bodies especially, have difficulty in defining and maintaining the boundaries of information disclosure that they should provide, whilst maintaining the utility of the information for the improvement of welfare and services.
  Privacy is contingent on first having a correctly secured database. Additional privacy controls are required when sensitive data leaves the protected trust perimeter of the database to be utilised by third parties.
