Common questions

When does the Notifiable Data Breaches Scheme come into effect?

It already has. It came into effect on 22 February 2018.

Does the GDPR apply to Australian cloud providers?

Article 3 of the GDPR makes it clear that the GDPR applies to organisations that provide goods or services not only to European Union (EU) citizens – but to any persons while they are in the European Union. It also applies to the monitoring of the behaviour of any persons in the EU. This includes many Australian cloud service providers, including data hosting providers, software-as-a-service (SAAS) and other online platform operators who typically permit access to their cloud services by persons from anywhere in the World with an internet connection, including from Europe.

When does the GDPR come into effect?

25 May 2018.

Does the GDPR really prevent cloud providers from engaging upstream hosting providers? 

Yes, unless the GDPR is complied with when engaging them.
