How this package can help you

With the enactment of the Australian Notifiable Data Breaches Scheme and the EU Genreal Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Privacy Law has now been brought head on into the digital age, bringing with its significant challenges for Australian services providers. Our Service Provider Privacy Kit seeks to make life easier for Australian services providers, and includes the following documents:

  • Data Breach Response Plan (DBRP) – designed for Service Providers to call on in circumstances where an eligible data breach occurs. The DBRP is built to aid Service Providers’ understandings as to what needs to be done if an eligible data breach occurs – not only from a legal compliance perspective, but from a commonsense perspective as well.
  • Service Provider Privacy Policy – a Privacy Policy for a services provider.
  • Employee Security and Confidentiality Undertaking – an undertaking that a Service Provider can ask its employees to sign up to, which addresses the confidentiality of personal data handled by company employees.
  • Data Processing Addendum - ​an agreement between a Service Provider and its Customer, that sets out the parties' agreed position on what is to occur if there is a data breach of jointly held personal information. It is designed to make the Customer responsible for carrying out the statutory data breach notifications where possible. It is also designed to address the GDPR requirements of a "processor" as an extention of the Service Provider's main agreement with its Customers.
  • Corporate IT Systems and Social Media Policy – a policy making employees aware that the company is serious about protecting its IT systems and preventing unauthorised use of social media in the workplace. ​

The New Privacy Landscape for Australian Services Providers

All Australian entities caught by the provisions of the Australian Privacy Act, have since 22 February 2018 been subject to the Notifiable Data Breaches Scheme, that requires eligible data breaches to be notified, and other steps to be taken, where data breaches occur that are likely to result in serious harm. The assessment, remediation, notification and other processes that need to be carried out are significant as are the penalties for non-compliance with the new privacy regime (up to $2.1 million for corporations). Australian entities can therefore no longer turn a blind eye when it comes to preparing for and acting when notifiable data breaches occur. 
To add to the regulatory red tape that the new Australian laws provide, on 25 May 2018,a new regulation has come into effect known as REGULATION (EU) 2016/679 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data (GDPR). The GDPR, although a regulation of the European Union (EU), has far reaching consequences for Australian organisations that provide goods or services not only to EU citizens – but to any persons while they are in the European Union and the monitoring of the behaviour of any persons in the EU. Non-compliance with the GDPR carries with it even bigger penalties – the greater of 4% of a company’s annual global turnover and €20 million.
