Privacy incidents and breaches
Practical guidance on privacy registers and privacy incident response plans.
Identifying, categorising and reporting privacy incidents (near misses) and breaches allows an agency to identify trends in privacy incidents and enhance its processes and systems.
The best way to manage a privacy incident or breach is to have a tested privacy incident response plan.
Developing a structured approach allows an agency to conduct its analysis of its privacy incident response in an objective and focused manner.
An agency can gain insights into its privacy practices and culture by assessing the actual and potential impact of its privacy incidents which can include privacy breaches and near misses.
