Legal Alert - Mandatory data breach notification

Tuesday, Feb 6, 2018

In a Nutshell
The Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act 2017 (Cth) was recently passed and is set to impose significant changes to the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth). The amendments will oblige many wineries to notify individuals who are affected by an unauthorised disclosure of, or access to, their personal information. Failure to notify those individuals can result in compensation orders or civil penalties being imposed.
