Australia Data Security
Living in a digital age means new ways of storing information. With this comes new challenges for Australian businesses. The Privacy Act 1988 (Privacy Act) is an Australian law which regulates the handling of personal information about individuals. Personal information is information or an opinion about an identified individual, or an individual who is reasonably identifiable.
Considering the changes on personal data by OAIC, we have the latest security protocols in sync with OAIC policy which includes best practices in data governance; robust practices around acquiring , identifying and classifying personal data; using high level of data security , concept of data privacy and protection enabling privacy by design and default , principal of data minimization and policy for incident and data breaches.
When our clients share the critical financial data with us, it is not just the data, they are also delivering the trust they place in us and it is due to the kind of infrastructure we have set up in place.
As claimed by our infrastructure partner, our network infrastructure is GDPR ready as we have partnered with one of the leading FTSE company in the UK having state of the art secured data centres across the 8 locations worldwide and primarily in the UK running their operation with the highest of the security standards.
Our investments towards the network infrastructure stands as a testament towards our commitment.
Having invested in the cloud infrastructure with all the security controls does not make us fully satisfied as we must work on the computer/laptops in our office.
Thus, adequate measures are in place to secure the information assets; Such as installation of the antivirus in our systems which takes care of the vulnerabilities of the malicious activities and setting the password and username which keeps changing after periodic interval of time.
