Data Breach Reporting Webinar – A Good Place to Start

As a result of the passing of the new mandatory data breach notification amendments into law, most organisations holding privacy information of customers or constituents are required to put in place reasonable security safeguards to prevent misuse, interference or loss. While Australian organisations generally have in place policies and procedures for the handling of privacy information, very few have invested in technology capable of protecting the privacy data itself.

The risk of privacy data, contained within information systems, being accidentally exposed or deliberately stolen is increasing every year. A recent study by 451 Research found that 3 in every 4 organisations had been the victim of a cyber-attack. Without adequate protection of your privacy data the likelihood of a serious data breach occurring, that may require your organisation to publicly apologise and take costly corrective action, is significant.

In order to address this security gap within Australian organisations, Oper8 is pleased to announce the Privacy Protection Fast-Start Program. This service uses world leading security technology from Thales to prevent unauthorised access, exposure or copying of sensitive data. Being a monthly service, it provides an affordable and easy way to overcome the risk of a serious data breach within your organisation.

To discover more about the background as to why this holds importance for you, please feel free to listen to our webinar that was held on Friday 12th May 2017. The Federal Law pertaining to Data Breach Reporting comes into effect in February 2018, we want everybody to be aware of the significance of this event so please share.
