The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) recently issued its first report of notifiable data breaches. More than 50 per cent of these breaches were caused by human error with only two per cent due to system error. Topping the list were health service data breaches at 24 per cent of the total. This is an important reminder to us all to acknowledge the risk and be vigilant to common security threats.
We are already 18 months through the triennium! HALFWAY! Now is a good time for GPs to consider their continuous professional development (CPD) to ensure that they are on track to achieve 130 points by the end of 2019 including PLAN, one category 1 activity and one CPR.
