The Australian Digital Health Agency’s 2017–18 annual report found 42 data breaches in the country’s My Health Record system, ZDNet reports. Despite the breaches, the ADHA said, "There have been no purposeful or malicious attacks compromising the integrity or security of the My Health Record system." As My Health Record continues to be a focal point of privacy concerns, Australians have until 31 Jan. to opt out of the system before an account is automatically created.

In the report, the ADHA stated it had a privacy team to "embed privacy within the functions and culture of the agency."
