(for non-health service providers, click here)


This webinar provides training for senior staff of health service provider organisations on the requirements of the Data Breach Notification Scheme (DBN Scheme) under the Commonwealth Privacy Act.

The DBN Scheme requires organisations to notify the Commissioner and affected individuals of serious data breaches, having a major impact on data breach incident response measures.

The course is industry-specific, addressing obligations and scenarios in the context of health services. It equips participants with a detailed understanding of:

•  the DBN Scheme requirements;
•  how to assess the seriousness of incidents and apply scheme requirements in real-life scenarios;
•  how prompt remedial action can prevent the triggering of scheme requirements;
•  issues to address in supplier and client contracts.

Attendees receive a bound Participant Handbook which contains course materials and provides a DBN Scheme reference handbook for future use.

The course can be purchased as a package (50% discount) with the Privacy Training Webinar - for Health Service Providers (which concludes one hour prior). Each course must be registered for separately (with discount coupons for the DBN Scheme course - see below).
