What’s this about?
The Privacy and Personal Information Protection Amendment Bill 2021 aims to strengthen privacy protection in NSW. The draft exposure bill proposes to:
- establish a mandatory notification of data breach (MNDB) scheme to require public sector agencies bound by the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998 to notify the Privacy Commissioner and affected individuals of data breaches of personal or health information, which are likely to result in serious harm, and
- applies the PPIP Act to all state-owned corporations that are not regulated by the Commonwealth Privacy Act 1988.
The NSW Government invites interested individuals and organisations to provide feedback on the bill.
