Notifiable Data Breaches scheme
The Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme, administered by the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) came into effect on 22 February 2018. This scheme requires organisations covered by the Privacy Act to notify the OAIC and affected individuals of eligible data breaches, for example, unauthorised access, loss or disclosure of personal information that could cause serious harm to the affected individual. It is important that all practitioners are aware of their potential responsibilities under this scheme.
