Australian Privacy Act – Privacy Amendment Fact Sheet
The Australian Government have recently passed a new privacy amendment – the Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Bill 2016 – to the Privacy Act 1988. The big question is who will it affect and what can you do to prepare?
This Bill introduces mandatory data breach notification provisions for agencies, organisations and certain other entities that are regulated by the Australian Privacy Act. When this law comes into effect (a set date is yet to be confirmed) organisations who hold any kind of private personal data of Australian citizens will need to make sure they are doing all they can to protect this information. Just like the GDPR, this is not just applicable for organisations based in Australia, but rather for any organisation globally who holds this kind of data on Australian citizens.
