Is your organisation ready?
From 22 February 2018, the Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act 2017 comes into effect.
The Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme applies to all agencies and organisations with existing personal information security obligations under the Australian Privacy Act 1988 (Privacy Act). The NDB scheme introduces an obligation to notify individuals whose personal information is involved in a data breach that is likely to result in serious harm. This notification must include recommendations about the steps individuals should take in response to the breach.
