Notifiable Data Breach

Since 2018, Australian organisations have had a legal requirement to publicly communicate the details of some data breaches. This puts organisations in a situation which many find uncomfortable: owning and being seen to publicly reveal news which isn’t seen as positive.

The rules affect huge swathes of Australian business, and require even organisations who don’t usually do much public communication to have a plan, and to execute it efficiently if they have a qualifying breach.

Purple’s Notifiable Data Breach White Paper explains when a breach would require public communication, discusses the challenges affecting organisations that have one, and looks at real-world examples of how others who have experienced them have managed their response.

Like most other cyber-related incidents, a notifiable data breach is more a “when” rather than an “if” issue. This white paper helps you prepare for when that day comes.
