New mandatory data breach notification laws come into effect on Feb 22nd, 2018. The new regulations make it compulsory for any organisation with more than $3 million turnover, to notify affected individuals in the instance of a cybersecurity breach.
Almost half of all Australian SMBs with an annual turnover of $3M+ do not consider themselves to be prepared for the mandatory data breach disclosure laws1. 57% of SMBs have not done any sort of IT security risk assessment in the last 12 months1, putting their devices, data and documents at risk. Of those who have undertaken a risk assessment recently just 29% included printers in their review1, a device that is increasingly targeted as an entry point for hackers.
