Understand and Protect Your Data
dataZumii helps organisations get to know and
protect their data assets.
The Australian Government introduced the Notifiable Data Breaches Scheme in 2018 under the Data Privacy Act (1998) that outlines requirements relating to Data Breaches of Personal Identifiable Information (PII). Organisations now have an obligation to notify Customers and the Government if a data breach is likely to result in serious harm to any individuals.
If your organisation has PII, then it needs to understand, classify and assess the risk of keeping it. Some examples of PII include:
data when combined, could identify an individual information about an individual's health financial information andinformation used to conduct identity theft (Medicare, Driver's licence).
If your organisation doesn't know what PII it has, then how can it protect it? It's important to think of all the parts of an organisation where data could be stored. Some of these are:
files including spreadsheets and documentsdatabasescloud applications anddigital devices (USB sticks, smart phones, tablets).
Where To Start
A good place to start is to identify files where PII is stored. These could be commonly used applications or files, though the risk is unknown as the number of places storing this type of information is also unknown.
Part of the issue is what to do with PII? It's important to ask the following questions:
is it needed to help run the organisation? (ASSESS it)if so, then who has access to it and do they need access? (LOCK it)delete what's not needed (DISPOSE it) andcreate a Data Breach Response Strategy (PLAN AHEAD).
Once PII is found, it's important to have procedures that help minimise risk and Policies to reinforce the procedures.
Where dataZumii Can Help

To future clients of dataZumii, I am a Real Estate Agent working in my own business, and as we all know how difficult is it to be able to get someone who is a specialist in the IT field that we can trust with all the confidential information we have on our systems. How very lucky we were to have Peter and the team, who took no time to assist when we needed them. After working with dataZumii I can't express in words how grateful we are to the company for their support during our difficult times as a small business, but now our business has grown quite considerably with dataZumii's support.How nice it is to close your business at the end of the day knowing if you need the best support for any data issues it's there.
