Notifiable Data Breach resources published - Get ready now! - 20 December 2017

Further to our previous article, the Notifiable Data Breach (NDB) statement and other resources have been finalised and published on the OAIC website.
 
The NDB will start on 22 February 2018. It requires organisations regulated by Australia’s Privacy Act to assess suspected data breaches, and to notify affected individuals of any breach that is likely to result in serious harm. Notice must also be given to the Australian Information Commissioner.
 
If your organisation needs guidance on how the NDB scheme may impact your organisation and how to best prepare, please contact Partner Hayden Delaney, Associate Steven Hunwicks or one of our data breach experts.
