Greg Hunt moves to toughen penalties for My Health Record misuseThe government will increase penalties for misuse of health data stored in the My Health Record and close a loophole that legal experts warned could allow domestic abusers to track their fleeing families. So; admission they have no security for our records and if we find they have been abused, they will fine whoever has done it. Ask that clown would he accept that level of bullshit and slap him around. Idiot. Lets face it. The internet is not a safe place for your personal and sensitive data. If you don't want something known keep it off the internet for a start.
