OAIC Reports 31 Notifications Since Start of New Data Breach Scheme

The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) revealed this week that it has already received 31 notifications since the Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme came into effect last February 22.

In the event of a breach, Australia’s NDB scheme requires organizations in the country covered by the Privacy Act of 1988 to notify individuals whose data has been affected as soon as practicable.

The figure emerged with the investigation of the OAIC into the data breach case of tugboat operator Svitzer Australia, which is part of the Maersk Group that fell victim to last year’s NotPetya attacks.
