We are delighted to share Issue 7 of our Cyber, Tech and Data Risk Report – our wrap-up of relevant news for the first quarter of 2024 for insurers, brokers and their customers doing business in Australia and New Zealand in the cyber, tech and data fields.

In our March issue, we cover the Australian Government’s plans to fast-track reforms to the Privacy Act in response to doxxing, the commencement of the consultation phase of the government’s 2023-2030 Cyber Security Strategy, the latest OAIC notifiable data breaches report, leadership changes in Australia’s key privacy and cyber regulatory roles, the question of whether ‘data goods’ can be the subject of a bailment, and provide an update on OAIC regulatory action in response to data breaches.

We also delve into global developments including the political agenda when it comes to the use of AI in government decision-making, Australia and the UK enhancing their online safety cooperation with the co-signing of an MoU, and the rise, fall and resurgence of LockBit.
