My Department has a data breach management policy in place to ensure that any data breaches are dealt with as required under Articles 33-34 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In line with this policy, the Department has identified and recorded twenty eight data breaches since 2018. Of the breaches identified in the Department since 2018, only a small proportion warranted formal notification to the Data Protection Commissioner under the GDPR. The majority of the breaches identified were determined to be minor in nature. These were handled in accordance with the Department's data breach management policy.
