Canon Business OAIC Recommendations Report 2019

In the 12 months since the Notifiable Data Breach Scheme came into effect, 964 breaches were reported. See which are the top reporting sectors, what types of information was leaked and what your business can learn to mitigate the risk internally.

Recommendations from the OAIC’s report into the Notifiable Data Breach Scheme


16 months-in, the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner’s report on the Notifiable Data Breach (NDB) scheme states that there was a 712% increase in notifications, and that the number of breaches notified is, to date, over 964. The truly worrying statistic was that these breaches were due to human error, while almost two thirds were the result of malicious or criminal attacks.

The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner’s (OAIC) released its latest quarterly report on the NDB scheme based on the period 1 April 2019 to 30 June 2019.

And OAIC’s main message to entities? “Put individuals first.”

At Canon, we have solutions across the broad spectrum of information security, but while the obvious focus is on securing individual computing devices and corporate networks, there’s an often-overlooked endpoint on corporate networks to consider – Multifunction Devices (MFDs).  Traditional MFDs now offer scan-and-send capabilities, network integration, and cloud-based functions.  While these features can contribute to more efficient workflows, they also have characteristics that may introduce additional security risks.
