I may have misunderstood this, but I would think the victim be distressed and damaged once they had been informed that all and sundry had seen their [insert your relevant sensitive information breach topic].  The distress would be caused, I would have thought, at the moment the organisation has to inform the victims that all and sundry have seen their sensitive personal information.

Unless this is occurring in a vacumn (like a reversed super injunction) where the victims of the breach are never told of the breach, they will suffer emotional distress and damage once they are told their sensitive personal information has been disclosed.

Best,

Lawrence

In which there is an error:

He refers to "the requirement that a contravention *must* cause substantial damage or distress before a penalty can be imposed. A challenge to this requirement is one of the most likely bases for an appeal".

But the Act says a MPN can be imposed if "the contravention was of a kind *likely* to cause substantial damage or substantial distress". There is a key distinction here, and it may be that he has been misquoted, but it could lead to confusion. You're not going to win an appeal against a MPN on the grounds that "we didn't cause substantial damage or distress", if in fact what you did was likely to have done.
