New Zealand launches new tool for reporting privacy breaches

The New Zealand’s Office of the Privacy Commissioner has announced the launch of a new tool for organisations to report privacy breaches. The online tool NotifyUs provides guidance for organisations in complying to the new Privacy Act 2020 which will come into effect on 1 December 2020.  Under the new act, if an organisation has a privacy breach that is likely to cause anyone serious harm, it is legally required to notify the government and any affected persons as soon as practicable.
