Notifiable Data Breaches webinar this November

Register now to attend a webinar hosted by the OAIC on 21 November, which will focus on the key requirements of the upcoming Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme.

Preparing for the Notifiable Data Breaches scheme. Webinar. Tuesday 21 November 2017. 12pm to 1pm AEDT.

The NDB scheme commences from 22 February 2018, and will require private sector businesses and government agencies covered by the Australian Privacy Act to notify affected individuals of ‘eligible data breaches’. An ‘eligible data breach’ is one that poses a likely risk of serious harm to any individual whose personal information is affected.

In addition to notifying individuals at a likely risk of serious harm, organisations will be obligated to notify the head of the OAIC, the Australian Information Commissioner.

Join the Preparing for the Notifiable Data Breaches scheme webinar on 21 November 2017 at 12.00 pm AEDT to learn how the obligations of the scheme will work in practice. The webinar will be hosted by OAIC directors Annan Boag and Sophie Higgins, who lead the development of the OAIC’s NDB resources. They will cover the key timings of the scheme, refer to case study examples, and answer your questions during a Q&A session.

Register today and let us know what question you want answered on the NDB scheme.
