AU: OAIC updates data breach guidelines
Hamish Barwick reports:
The Office of the Australian Information Commission (OAIC) has updated its voluntary data breach guidelines as a means of encouraging organisations to notify the public in the advent of a data breach.
The new guidelines, entitled Data breach notification, update the August 2008 Guide to handling personal information security breaches.
Information Commissioner, John McMillian, launched the guidelines in Sydney to coincide with Privacy Awareness Week.
