Assessment Description
National Australia Bank
https://www.afr.com/companies/financial-services/nab-repays-customers-688k-for-data-breach-
20210421-p57l1q
Background
“The accounts of about 13,000 NAB customers were compromised on Wednesday, July 24, 2019,
after an employee uploaded details, including government-issued identity documents such as
Medicare cards, to two different websites with the bank informing customers on the following Friday
night”.
“At the time of the event, there were insufficient technical controls in place to prevent transfers of
this nature. NAB has uplifted these controls to prevent a similar event occurring in the future,” NAB
said in a statement.
“Among the new controls the bank introduced were the blocking of certain websites and closer
email monitoring of staff and contractors”
In 2021, National Australia Bank revealed it paid $686,878 in compensation to customers exposed
to this 2019 data breach after the personal account details of 13,000 customers were uploaded to a
website similar to Google Sheets.
Brief
As an analyst within NAB, you have been tasked with considering ways in which customer data
can be used to further assist NAB with its marketing campaigns.
As a further task, you have been asked to consider how NAB could potentially assist other vendors
interested in the credit card history of its customers.

Assessment Instructions
Part A: Industry Report (1800 words, 25 marks) – Individual

Descriptive, predictive and prescriptive applications of the data available and
the data analytics software tools this would require.
Data Security and privacy
Data security, privacy and accuracy issues associated with the use of the
database in the way proposed in the brief.
Ethical Considerations
The ethical considerations behind whether the customer has the option to opt in
or opt out of having their data used and stored in the way proposed by the
analytics brief
Other ethical issues of gathering, maintaining and using the data in the way
proposed above.
Artificial Intelligence
How developments in AI intersects with data security, privacy and ethics,
especially in light of your proposed analytics project.

Part B: Presentation (5 minutes, 15 marks)
Instructions:
You are required to prepare a presentation of 10 – 12 PowerPoint slides.
You are an analyst at National Australia Bank.
You have identified a way in which you can use customer data to inform customers of bank offers
and offers from other vendors, based on their credit card spending history.
Although it’s National Australia Bank’s own data, regulators and legislators are becoming
increasingly concerned about the way in which certain types of analytics projects can infringe on
privacy, individual rights and potentially be in contravention of the Australian Privacy Principles,
GDPR and other legislation.
Create a presentation of approximately 5 minutes in which you discuss how National Australia Bank
plans to use this data and the broad implications involved.
Discuss the issues below, and imagine you are communicating this presentation to government
(regulators and / or legislators) as your primary audience.
Consider:
1. Why you want the data and the resulting benefits to your customer base;
2. How the data can be sourced ethically and securely;
3. How you will keep the data safe from the type of attack on customer data outlined in
the AFR article above.
4. How you will use your analytical findings in an ethical way.
The sources below are for your reference only. Use these as you see fit as well as your own
research.
