The Breach Notification Bill is applicable to a wide range of sectors that have vital ICT systems to manage their operations, such as the energy, telecoms, finance and transport sectors. The unique feature of the Breach Notification Bill is that notifications will be handled by the National Cyber Security Center (the “NCSC“).
