Health & Community Services: Notifiable Data Breaches - Melbourne

May 2018 | Cyber Risk

Partner Michael Gapes is presenting alongside David Hansen, National Manager of IMGA MediProtect, on Data breach - what now? Complying with the Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act 2017 at the Australian General Practice Accreditation Limited (AGPAL) and Quality Innovation Performance (QIP) 2018 Conference.

Are you aware that if your health or community service loses a hard drive, experiences cyber-crime or provides an unauthorised person with access to patient files, you are now legal obliged to report this data breach?

The Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act 2017 became mandatory earlier this year, requiring all businesses in Australia to notify the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC), and any impacted individuals, about all data breaches that are likely to result in serious harm to any individuals whose personal information is involved in the breach.

At this session Michael and David will provide an overview of the Notifiable Data Breaches Scheme, outlining practical instructions on how to comply in the event of a data breach and the steps you can take to protect your service.

The AGPAL and QIP 2018 Conference running from Thursday 17 to Saturday 19 May, offers industry professionals an exciting arena to engage, converse and network with peers and experts while learning about what’s topical in the health and communit­­­­­y sectors.
