Over 90% of the data breaches that occurred in my Department since 2018 are classified as unauthorised disclosure of personal data (most of which occurred due to human error), while the balance involved the loss of personal data e.g. loss of an electronic device.

The majority of the breaches identified were determined to be minor in nature and were handled in accordance with the Department's data breach management policy.
