Addressing the issue of timely notifications
Locally in Australia, under the Privacy Act 1988, businesses are obligated to report any data breaches to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC). In one of their recent reports* they specifically called out the issue of timely notifications.
Compliance around breaches is challenging, as many attack vectors can lie dormant in systems for months, if not years, before becoming active. That is why vulnerability management and reporting is an essential piece of your cyber security strategy.
The OAIC has seen significant variation in the time taken by entities to identify, assess and investigate breaches and then notify affected individuals. Most entities took all reasonable steps to conduct an assessment of the incident suspected to be an eligible data breach within 30 days – as required by section 26WH of the Privacy Act – and then moved promptly to notify both the OAIC and affected individuals. However, increasingly the OAIC is seeing instances of organisations taking much longer than 30 days to complete their assessments, with further significant delays before they notify affected individuals. Additional time taken to assess a breach must be reasonable and justified in the circumstances, with notification to individuals to occur as soon as practicable.
With always-on privacy and compliance controls, you are alerted to bad actors or malicious behaviour as soon as they present. The powerful artificial intelligence algorithms immediately recognise what’s normal and what’s not within your network.
Leveraging Cloud Compliance, you can reduce the time to respond from days to minutes. You’ve also got the ability to perform data investigations at their most granular form across all your data sources.
Data compliance, anywhere
According to a Deloitte report, more than 90% of global enterprises will rely on hybrid cloud by 2022. Another survey from the same month found that 97% of IT managers planned to distribute workloads across two or more clouds to maximize resilience, meet regulatory and compliance requirements, and leverage best-of-breed services from different providers.**
The dynamic nature of cloud and the movement of data means that your compliance strategy needs to cover your business anywhere. With the accelerated digital transformation many companies have experienced, more devices are accessing your network, and the 9-5 working day is no longer the norm.
Cloud compliance allows you to maintain constant control and visibility, ensuring that unauthorised private and sensitive data doesn’t leave the perimeter.
