Resources to assist with Notifiable Data Breach Scheme
On February 22nd 2018, the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner released a guide titled Data breach preparation and response — A guide to managing data breaches in accordance with the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Privacy Act). The guide consolidates information provided in the Data breach notification — A guide to handling personal information security breaches released in 2014, the Guide to developing a data breach response plan released in 2016, and the resources published to assist entities in complying with the Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme last year. In addition to outlining the key requirements relating to data breaches in the Privacy Act, including personal information security requirements and the obligations of the Notifiable Data Breaches scheme, the guide covers other key considerations in developing a robust data breach response strategy. This includes key steps to take when a breach occurs, the capabilities of staff, and governance processes.
