SECURE YOUR BUSINESS

Organisations rely heavily on IT to run their day to day, business-critical operations. The availability, integrity and security of these systems is therefore essential to the continued success of that organisation and vital to its future prosperity.

There is debate as to whether we are in the “Information Age”, the “Technology Age” or the “Experience Age” as technology, and how we interact with it, continues to advance and evolve at an uncontrollable pace. What isn’t debatable however, is the extraordinary increase in both the complexity and frequency of cyber-attacks, cyber-intrusion and their potential effect on businesses of all sizes.

As individuals and organisations continue to embrace a digital first approach, the economic opportunities are huge and the uptake therefore increasing. The global effects of digitisation and digital transformation will however, create an enhanced risk profile for all. With the unprecedented growth and sophistication of cyber threats and Cyber intrusion and their often-costly impact, a lack of security awareness or ignorance of the possible dangers, can result in organisations being exploited, leaving behind profound business impact and the possibility of significant financial penalty or loss.

Australia Now Has Mandatory Data Breach Notification

As custodians of sensitive personal and commercial information, Australian businesses that have been breached or have lost data must report the incident to the Privacy Commissioner and notify customers.

What are your requirements as an Australian entity?

The bill applies to organisations that have responsibilities under the Privacy Act.

This includes:

  • Australian Government agencies
  • Businesses and not-for-profit organisations with an annual turnover of more than $3 million.
  • The Privacy Act also applies to some types of businesses with an annual turnover of $3 million or less, by extension, the Data Breach Notification laws will apply to them too.

These businesses include:

  1. Private sector health services providers (even alternative medicine practices, gyms and weight loss clinic fall under this category)
  2. Child care centres, private schools, and private tertiary educational institutions.
  3. Businesses that sell or purchase personal information along with credit reporting bodies
  4. Individuals who handle personal information for a living, including those who handle credit reporting information, tax file numbers and health records are also covered under the new data breach notification scheme.
