Understanding Incident Response in the age of Mandatory Notification, with Ben Di Marco

Understanding Incident Response in the age of Mandatory Notification

Australia's Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act 2017 (Cth) (the Data Notification Law) came into force on 22 February 2018 and imposes obligations on organisations to notify individuals whose records are compromised by an "eligible" security breach and
to report notifiable breaches to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner.
The Data Notification Law will challenge how organisations manage security incidents, and increase compliance and regulatory risks. The purpose of this presentation is to provide risk managers and security professionals with an understanding of the practical implications of the law, an understanding of the real costs that are likely to be incurred where a security event arises, and to provide guidance on how best to manage the law and its likely consequences.
The presentation will address the following topics:
(a) Understanding how data security incident response should be conducted in light of Australia's Data Notification Law;
(b) Examining the true costs of data breaches, and key strategies to reduce the costs and the compliance burden;
(c) Managing the process for investigating and providing notification;
(d) Learning from mandatory notification case studies drawn from both local and international examples; and
(e) Guidelines and key strategies to more effectively manage risk.
