eBay and PayPal have jointly called for stronger measures for online security, and data breach notifications laws which are not one size fits all.
These recommendations were made in its submission to the Inquiry into Cybersafety for Senior Australians.
The Joint Select Committee on Cyber-Safety inquiry will report on the cybersafety of senior Australians, and make recommendations aimed at ensuring Australian law, policy and programs represent best practice measures for the cybersafety of senior Australians.
In recent analysis of eBay’s active user database, approximately 10% of users have identified themselves as aged 55 years or older. PayPal, has approximately 11% of its users identified as aged 55 years or older. This represents over 400,000 senior Australians as PayPal users.
The submission was also reported by Australia’s national newspaper, The Australian.
