The NDB scheme applies to all agencies and organisations (NMM) with existing personal information security obligations under the Australian Privacy Act 1988 (Privacy Act) from 22 February 2018.

This notification must include recommendations about the steps individuals should take in response to the breach. The Australian Information Commissioner (Commissioner) must also be notified of eligible data breaches.
NMM will as a matter of urgency will act on any such breach by informing all affected clients of the data breach circumstances under the terms and direction of the NDB Scheme.
