The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner was notified by Family Planning NSW about a data breach incident that occurred on 25 April 2018. The OAIC understands that Family Planning NSW is in the process of notifying individuals whose personal information may have been affected by the breach.

The Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme, which commenced on 22 February 2018, requires organisations to notify affected individuals and the OAIC where there is a likely risk of serious harm to any of the individuals whose personal information is involved in the data breach.

The OAIC has published a number of resources for those affected by a data breach and action they can take:

If anyone has concerns about this incident they can, in the first instance, contact Family Planning NSW directly on 1800 957 860 or and if not satisfied with their response they can contact the OAIC at or on 1300 363 992.
