What to do if you think you have revealed confidential information
Is your organisation prepared to respond to ID theft as a result of a successful phishing attempt?
As a manager or owner of a business, you are responsible for protecting sensitive organisational, member and customer information. Your brand and reputation are the most important assets your organisation has.
Depending on your organisation, there may be clear legal obligations regarding security, confidentiality and privacy of data or sensitive personal and financial information.
If you are unsure of your obligations, you could contact:
- The business advisory service run by your local council or state or territory government
- The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner – www.oaic.gov.au
- The Office of the eSafety Commissioner – www.esafety.gov.au
- Your relevant industry or member association
iDcare also works with organisations of all sizes to make sure they know what to do if customer details are digitally or physically stolen. They can provide “best practice” recommendations and support for your particular situation.
