Webcast Recording: Preparing for the Notifiable Data Breaches scheme
Tuesday, 21 November 2017
Starting 22 February 2018, organisations with obligations under the Australian Privacy Act 1988 will be required to comply with the Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme.

The NDB scheme requires organisations to notify individuals affected by a data breach that is likely to result in serious harm. There is also the requirement to notify the Australian Information Commissioner, the head of the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC).

Where it is uncertain if a data breach is likely to result in serious harm, there is the obligation to conduct an assessment of the breach.

Join Annan Boag and Sophie Higgins from the OAIC on 21 November 2017 to learn about the requirements and key timings of the NDB scheme. Both Annan and Sophie have played leading roles in the development of the OAIC’s NDB scheme guidance, developed to help organisations prepare for the scheme.

Annan and Sophie will illustrate how the NDB scheme operates in practice with examples. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions.

Sophie’s team is responsible for the OAIC’s regulatory and strategic policy response to privacy issues across a range of issues in Australia and internationally.

She plays a leadership role in the development of the OAIC’s resources on the Notifiable Data Breaches scheme. 

Examples of her other work include advising External Dispute Resolution schemes on the operation of consumer credit reporting requirements, and developing submissions on the operation of consent-based privacy regulatory models.
