                Australian Privacy Act 1988 Amendment Explained

                Introduction of eligible breach notification being passed by Australian parliament. Here is what you need to know.

                On February 13th 2017 a bill to amend the Privacy Act 1988 was approved by Australian Parliament.

                This new amendment will mean the introduction of mandatory notification of eligible data breaches by entities subject to the Privacy Act.

                This represents a significant step in advancing the overall attitude towards cyber security in Australia. The change will bring Australia in line with regions such as the United Kingdom, Europe and the United States of America.

                This paper explains who these amendments will apply to and what they mean. As this bill would be an amendment to the Privacy Act 1988 this paper also outlines the Australian Privacy Principles.
