Notifiable Data Breaches scheme update


The Australian Information Commissioner has today released draft resources on the Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme. These obligations will commence from  22 February 2018.

Under the scheme, organisations required to comply with the Privacy Act 1988 must notify individuals if their personal information is involved in a data breach that is likely to result in serious harm. They must also notify the Australian Information Commissioner.
