Our experience in the Not-for-Profit sector

We have a strong presence in the not for profit sector, with some of our clients having been with us for more than 13 years. We have built up our presence in this sector, almost entirely through referrals. Our not for profit clients range from environmental legal entities, child and adult rehabilitation, disability, local council/community services to emergency services.

We are often privy to legally sensitive and confidential information which we treat with respect and sensitivity. Our staff have undergone police checks, working with children and security clearance.

Changes to Privacy Laws and Regulatory Requirements in 2018 will effect the security IT requirements of Not For Profits

The Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act 2017 (NDB scheme) was passed on 13 Feb 2017, as of 22 February 2018 all entities covered by the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) must have clear obligations to report eligible data breaches.

APP entities

Agencies and organisations that already have obligations under the Privacy Act 1988 to secure personal information must comply with the Notifiable Data Breaches scheme.

This includes Australian Government agencies, businesses and not-for profit organisations that have an annual turnover of more than $3 million, private sector health service providers, credit reporting bodies, credit providers, entities that trade in personal information and tax file number recipients. However, some businesses of any size are APP entities, including businesses that trade in personal information and organisations that provide a health service to, and hold health information about, individuals.

The changing regulatory environment regards security will require increased reporting and improved audit trails.  City Systems can help with both increasing security for NFPs systems to prevent security breaches, improving the speed of reporting processes, improving data storage and backup to speed up recovery of lost data through security attacks.

For more information about APP entities, see Chapter B of Australian Privacy Principle Guidelines (APP Guidelines).[2]
