We’re delighted to publish Issue 6 of our Cyber, Tech and Data Risk Report – our wrap-up of news for the second half of 2023 for insurers, brokers and their customers doing business in Australia and New Zealand in the cyber, tech and data fields.

In our December issue, we cover a number of developments in Australia including legal privilege of forensic reports, the increasing number of data breach class actions, the government response to the Privacy Act Review Report, amendments to the PPIP Act, the proposed mandatory data breach notification scheme in Queensland, OAIC’s legal action against Australian Clinical Labs for cyber breach delay, and cyber insurance recoveries for subrogation claims.

For New Zealand, we cover the introduction of the Privacy Amendment Bill 2023, changes to the government’s approach to dealing with cybercrime, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner (OPC)’s project on privacy rights for children and young people and the OPC’s guidance on the use of AI.
