IDC Names Securiti a Worldwide Leader in Data PrivacyView
In this whitepaper, you will learn about:
Regulators across all sectors and regions are developing new data-sharing requirements between organizations, including banks, telecommunications companies, and government agencies. Consumers and policymakers alike know that increased data sharing puts their private and sensitive information in greater danger to cybercriminals.
As a result, Australia’s data privacy and cybersecurity landscape takes into consideration the evolving and escalating threats by amending Australia’s Privacy Act 1988 to mirror the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and enforcing stricter controls and penalties on organizations, necessitating them to secure individual’s personal data from disclosure, misuse, and theft.
The primary piece of Australian law governing the handling of personal information about individuals is the Privacy Act of 1988. This covers the federal, public, and private sector's collection, use, storage, and disclosure of personal information.
There are 13 Australian Privacy Principles (APPs), and they establish guidelines, rights, and duties related to collecting, using, and disclosing personal data.
The GDPR applies to any business that processes the personal data of individuals in the European Union. GDPR will therefore apply to an Australian business with clients in Europe. The GDPR may still apply to a company even if they don't directly gather personal data from EU citizens due to contracts they may have with suppliers or clients.
