Your organisation will be responsible for personal data, whether on a small or large scale. It is an increasingly valuable asset, and it is essential for you to ensure compliance with the regulatory framework that sits around all processing of that data. It is important because it is a legal requirement, but it is also important because it goes to the heart of your business success.
In certain situations, if your organisation has suffered a personal data breach, the Law requires this to be reported to us. This is an important tool for both the regulated community and the ODPA. Organisations need to ensure they have robust processes in place to respond to data breaches and the ODPA will use the information to support awareness and compliance campaigns.
