SYDNEY – The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) has released its Q3 data breach findings reported under the Notifiable Data Breach Scheme (NDB). Human error has again appeared as a leading cause of email data breaches and, today, DocsCorp – a leading provider of document productivity solutions – reported a 69% increase in the sale of its information leak prevention software cleanDocs . The number of cleanDocs users increased by 62% in that same period.
The NDB Scheme requires that Australian businesses report eligible data breaches to the OAIC and affected individuals. Australian firms have looked to technology to minimise the chance of breaches occurring.
“The NDB Scheme findings prove that while staff should be the first line of defence against a breach, they are often, in fact, the weakest link,” said DocsCorp President and Co-Founder, Dean Sappey . “Data loss protection tools like cleanDocs empower users to protect sensitive client information and instil in them the confidence they won’t inadvertently cause a breach. Australian businesses must make human error in handling email a top security priority if they are to avoid making headlines for the wrong reason.”
cleanDocs is the smart way to scrub metadata and send secure emails. Upon clicking Send, users can check the recipient list for external or blacklisted email domains, Reply All and Forward actions to ensure the right information is being sent to the right person every time and that the user’s actions are as intended.
