Notifiable data breaches scheme

Assess and identify notifiable data breaches

In February 2018, the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) commenced the Notifiable Data Breach (NDB) scheme.

The scheme outlines the mandatory requirements for organisations, including general practices, in responding to data breaches.

The Notifiable Data Breaches scheme fact sheet has been developed to assist general practices to appropriately assess and identify notifiable data breaches and to know their reporting requirements under the NDB scheme.

The Managing notifiable data breaches in general practice flowchart provides step by step guidance to identify and manage data breaches in general practice.
