Mandatory Data breach notification
March 6 - 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM AEDT
Last year, Australia introduced a new mandatory data breach notification regime, which requires most Australian businesses – and all healthcare providers – to notify the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner and affected individuals of any data breach which puts one or more individuals at likely risk of serious harm. The new law applies to incidents of any size, meaning that even a wrongly addressed email or misplaced USB key can require you to notify the Commissioner and your patients.
This seminar will:
- look at the requirements of the new laws as they apply to healthcare providers;
- provide practical guidance on how and when to notify a data breach; and
- discuss what you can do now to ensure your practice is ready if a data breach occurs.
