All Victorian public sector organisations subject to Part 4 of the Privacy and Data Protection Act 2014 have the following reporting obligations.
Victorian public sector organisations must annually attest to the progress of activities identified in their Protective Data Security Plan (PDSP) submitted to OVIC.
Protective Data Security Plan
Victorian public sector organisations must submit a PDSP to OVIC at least every two years, or upon significant change.
When organisations experience a significant change to their operations the associated risks to their information assets and their protective data security obligations can change as a result.
Organisations must notify OVIC of incidents with a business impact level (BIL) of 2 (limited) or higher that have an adverse impact on the confidentiality, integrity or availability of public sector information.
