The Notifiable Data Breaches commences today

Thursday, February 22, 2018

Starting today, Australian Government agencies and organisations required to secure personal information under the Privacy Act 1988 (Privacy Act) have mandatory data breach notification and assessment obligations under the Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme.

These agencies and organisations must notify individuals affected by a data breach that is likely to result in serious harm.

The NDB scheme formalises a long-held community expectation for transparency when a data breach occurs. It also reinforces the accountability of agencies and organisations for personal information security, encouraging a higher standard of privacy protection across the public and private sector
