What is Cyber Security Compliance?

On an average about 205 cyber-attacks occur daily in Australia in 2023. That’s an attack every 7 minutes. Cyber Security Compliance are the regulated guidelines set by the Australian Government to protect your business. These rules safeguard data and saves you millions. However, figuring out which rules fit your business can be tricky and stressful for you. 

What is the Australian Privacy Act 1988?

The Privacy Act 1988 is a federal law that sets strict standards for handling personal data. It aims to protect individuals’ privacy by carefully regulating how their personal information is gathered, used, stored, and shared. This protection is achieved by abiding to the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs), a comprehensive set of guidelines that Business or Entities must follow.

Objectives of the Act:

1. Protecting individuals’ rights remains the main objective of this act. 

2. While ensuring individual’s privacy is most important, the organisations should also operate efficiently.

3. Creating a uniform approach to privacy across the nation.

4. Encouraging organisations to be open about their data handling practices. 

5. Ensuring that credit reporting respects individual’s privacy.

6. Enabling data exchange across borders while safeguarding individual privacy.

7. Providing a platform for individuals to voice their privacy concerns. 

8. Strengthening Australia’s international stance on privacy. 

Does the Privacy Act cover your business?

Regardless of 3M turnover per Annum, the Privacy Act covers any business that is:
  • Health Service Providers
  • Trading in Personal Information
  • Contractors under Commonwealth Contracts
  • Operators of Residential Tenancy Databases
  • Credit Reporting Bodies
  • Reporting Entities for AML/CTF
  • Employee Associations
  • Protection Action Ballot Conductors
  • Businesses Accredited Under the Consumer Data Right System

Consequences of Non-Compliance

While the act serves as a protective shield, it also has teeth. Business failing to comply with the act’s provisions face severe consequences:

  • Investigations by the OAIC: The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) holds the authority to delve into potential breaches, either upon receiving a complaint or proactively.
  • Hefty Civil Penalties: Serious or repeated breaches can attract fines up to $2.1 million for corporations and up to $420,000 for individuals.
  • Claiming Compensation: Affected individuals have the right to seek compensation for both economic and non-economic losses.
  • Reputational Damage: Beyond financial penalties, adverse media coverage can tarnish a business’s reputation and lowers trust.
  • Commissioner’s Determinations: Breaches can lead to orders for compensation or corrective actions to mitigate the harm done.
