How Eligible Data Breaches are Handled
Eligible data breaches happen where there is an unauthorised access to or unauthorised disclosure of or loss of personal information held by us which may result in serious harm to an individual.
Pursuant to the Australian Privacy Protection Principles, the Skyreach group must take all reasonable steps to protect personal information from misuse, interference and loss, and from unauthorised access, modification and disclosure.
A data breach response plan outlines processes as to how a data breach will be contained, evaluated and managed. The plan also outlines how we decide whether it is necessary to notify an individual of a data breach.
Our data breach response plan is as follows:
- Contain the breach;
- Initiate a preliminary assessment by the Data Breach Response team;
- Assess the risks for individuals associated with the breach;
- Determine who needs to be made aware of the breach;
- Review the incident and take action to prevent future breaches
When deciding whether an individual is required to be notified, the following factors will be considered:
- Whether there is a risk of serious harm to the individual;
- whether notification will avoid or mitigate possible harm;
- whether the compromised information is sensitive or likely to cause humiliation or embarrassment for the individual; and
- whether there are legal and/or contractual obligations to notify.
If we reasonably believe there is a risk of serious harm to the individual due to a data breach, we will notify the Commissioner. In some situations, we may also notify other third parties.
