Cyber Incident Response Plan

Notifiable Data Breach law has now been in effect

Commercial organisations may be impacted by the new Notifiable Data Breach provisions of the Australian Privacy Act coming into force in 2018.
A Cyber Incident Response Plan sets out the roles and responsibilities of staff and third parties in the event of a malicious attack or data breach. The plan ensures the incident is managed in a controlled and efficient manner and affected individuals and relevant authorities are informed in a timely fashion.
