I wish to advise the Deputy that the majority (approx. 75%) of data breaches recorded by my Department since 2018 related to incidents where, due to human error, data was provided to incorrect recipients.

Other data breaches include the misfiling of documentation internally, and the loss of encrypted devices such as mobile phones. 

The Deputy is advised that my Department is committed to protecting the rights and privacy of all individuals and complies fully with data breach reporting requirements.
