In February 2018 the Notifiable Data Breaches Scheme began, requiring Australian Government agencies, businesses and not-for-profit organisations with an annual turnover of $3 million or more to report data breaches. Failures to comply with the NDB scheme can attract fines up to $2.1 million.
In addition to this, from 25 May 2018  the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (the GDPR) enforced new data protection requirements which may impact Australian businesses.

As more cases of data breaches emerge, it is clear that the risks for businesses of all sizes are not just the government fines and penalties but reputation damage and loss of customer trust.
