With apprehensions growing around the data security and privacy, more and more countries want the data of their citizens to be stored within the country. The need for a secure data storage strategy is a vital part of every boardroom discussion, particularly for SaaS-based companies. There has been a constantly growing focus on how these companies can better handle Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and Personal Health Information (PHI). Apart from secure data storage and processing, they also need to understand the “why, where, & how”.

With the data security and privacy regulations in effect, the subjects of the data have more control than earlier. The organizations too need to understand where their data lives and be able to process it while complying with the regulatory laws.

The Australian data privacy regulations originate from the Privacy Act of 1988 (Privacy Act) as well as some additions in the Privacy Regulation 2013. The most recent extension has been Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act 2017.
