SimByte develops APPii a security compliance portal

Australia Privacy Pro (APPii) is a scaleable compliance platform that can leverage from existing controls and historical audit findings, providing easy to use modules that provide effective oversight, better visibility of compliance programs and a great end user experience. In particular, gains can be made from creating specific modules from which current compliance data can be added, giving an all year around visibility of compliance programs, from which future compliance savings can be leveraged.

APPii, an independent user-friendly portal that assists organisations in self-assessing their compliance with the 13 key Australian Privacy Principles (APP) and 5 Credit Report (CR) Summaries which guide them in protecting personally identifiable information. APPii helps organisations conduct annual assessments on data privacy, maintain visibility of their progress throughout project lifecycles and perform scheduled internal audits on specific areas.

APPii can also allocate remediation tasks with priorities and deadlines to appropriate team members or groups, visualise progress on a dashboard, show task status and overdue tasks, describe how self-assessed compliance has been achieved for each requirement and enable auditor validation.

APPii represents an integrated solution with comprehensive functionality that seeks to replace traditionally disparate solutions for compliance assessment and workflow management. 

The technical objective of this project is to develop Australia Privacy Pro (APPii), an independent user-friendly portal that assists organisations in self-assessing their compliance with the 13 key Australian Privacy Principles (APP) and 5 Credit Report (CR) Summaries which guide them in protecting personally identifiable information. APPii helps organisations conduct annual assessments on data privacy, maintain visibility of their progress throughout project lifecycles and perform scheduled internal audits on specific areas.

APPii can also allocate remediation tasks with priorities and deadlines to appropriate team members or groups, visualise progress on a dashboard, show task status and overdue tasks, describe how self-assessed compliance has been achieved for each requirement and enable auditor validation.

APPii represents an integrated solution with comprehensive functionality that seeks to replace traditionally disparate solutions for compliance assessment and workflow management. 

There are several key features in the system:

•    Module-based content (APP and CR)
•    Role-based user permissions
•    Insight and intelligence (dashboard, task-based workflow and function-based reporting)

Specific functionalities include, but are not limited to:

•    Task creation function
•    Progress and status updates of compliance achievement
•    Organisational assessments of data privacy and schedule audits on specified areas
•    Allocate tasks with priorities and deadlines
•    Task reminder and review capabilities

The development activities will involve the creation and refinement of software codes, and the generation of links between different modules for a holistic and efficient solution. This system will act as the central management system which provides external validation for auditors and internal oversight across all departments, facilitating the implementation of compliance protocols and resolution of privacy breaches.
