New Guide for the NDB Scheme

Wednesday 21 February 2018

The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) has released their new data breach preparation and response guide.

The Notifiable Data Breach (NDB) reporting scheme takes effect from Thursday of this week.

According to a statement released by the OAIC, this new guide consolidates information shared in previous guides, including:

  • Data breach notification—a guide to handling personal information security breaches; and
  • A guide to developing a data breach response plan.

Other resources, published previously by the OAIC to help businesses respond to a data breach, have also been included.

“In addition to outlining the key requirements relating to data breaches in the Privacy Act, including personal information security requirements and the obligations of the
 Notifiable Data Breaches scheme, the guide covers other key considerations in developing a robust data breach response strategy. This includes key steps to take when a breach occurs, the capabilities of staff, and governance processes,” the OAIC said.

The information in the new guide can be used by any organisation operating in Australia.
