New Data Breach Regime, Privacy and Confidentiality

52 52 people viewed this event.


The new regime relating to mandatory notification for data breaches came into effect on 22 February, 2018.  Organisations that are subject to the Privacy Act 1988 must now notify the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner and affected individuals where an ‘eligible data breach’ has occurred.

Is your organisation prepared? 

Given the extent of sensitive information that most organisations hold on behalf of their clients, it is essential that your organisation is familiar with the requirements of the new regime, and you are ready to respond quickly should a data breach occur.

Join us at our first Breakfast Briefing for 2018 where our experienced commercial lawyer, Peter Stewart will discuss:

  • What is an eligible data breach?
  • What does ‘serious harm’ mean?
  • When and how must a notification be prepared?
  • Why data breach notification is good privacy practice.
  • Why breach of confidentiality may not necessarily be a data breach.
  • What steps should you take to review your IT contracts and create an internal response plan.

Don’t miss this opportunity to ensure you are familiar with the requirements of the new data breach regime.
