BLUF

The requirement for healthcare professionals to share data between GPs, chemists, physios, etc., increases the risks of data breaches; therefore, violations must be reported as soon as they occur.

Summary

Ariel Bogle writing in ABC News, makes the following points:
  • Three hundred ninety-six data breaches were reported from Jan-Jun 2022.
  • Some companies took over a year to report violations.
  • Four breaches affected 100,000 or more customers.
  • Critics say OAIC takes little enforcement action to stop Australian companies from mismanaging data.
