Every Australian company will be impacted by a data breach at some point. While high-profile data breaches have been reported extensively throughout the last 12 months, a lot of people wouldn’t know that there were more than 400 notifiable breaches reported to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) this year to June 2023.
Porter Novelli has developed specific expertise in cyber incident response in recent years, working with a range of clients to respond to sensitive and high-profile breaches. We have also developed our data breach specialisation following changes to the Australian Government’s Privacy Act in February 2018 as well as the introduction of the European Union’s GDPR requirements.
That’s why we have launched ‘Cyber Security Incidents: A Call to Action’, a research study by Porter Novelli and Quantum Market Research that explores the seldom-discussed impact of cyber security incidents on Australians.
Our study has found that Australians are highly sceptical about the capabilities available to protect them from hackers, and the emotional and financial toll from previous breaches is driving a feeling of helplessness among consumers.
The message for Australian companies is clear:
