DSB | End of Week Wrap Up | 8th of July 2022

Dear Consumer Data Right participants and other interested parties,

Happy Friday all, here is the end of the week update for the Consumer Data Standards.

News and Announcements

Latest Standards, Consumer Experience, tooling and Consumer Data Right announcements.


12th Maintenance Iteration Kick-off

The 12th Maintenance Iteration will commence on the 20th July 2022. Invitations have been sent out to the invitees of the 11th Maintenance Iteration. 


Independent Information Security Review

The DSB, as an arm of Treasury, has engaged an external specialist assurer to provide an independent assessment of how the Information Security Profile (Profile) of the Data Standards for the Consumer Data Right (CDR) is tracking against relevant security benchmarks. Similar assessments have been completed in the past (the last one is here) and more will be undertaken in the future to help ensure the CDS remain fit for purpose. As some time has passed since the last assessment the current work has been approached in a staged manner and the attached report should be read as a first pass intended, in part, to identify areas that will require further and more detailed attention.

Accessibility Report of CX Standards

In 2022, the DSB engaged PwC's Indigenous Consulting and the Centre for Inclusive Design to conduct an accessibility analysis of the CX standards and related artefacts. This work seeks to maintain alignment with current and emerging standards and obligations related to accessibility, such as the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).
