Client Alert: PageUp data breach

 


Human resources service provider, PageUp, reported on 23 May 2018 that unusual activity was detected on its IT infrastructure. Following a forensic investigation, it was found that client data may have been compromised and unofficial reports have indicated the breach was caused by the introduction of malware to the company’s IT systems. PageUp has confirmed there is no evidence that the threat is still active.


The personal information of thousands of Australians has potentially been compromised, with some local companies confirming that job applicants may have had bank details, tax file numbers, home addresses and birth dates disclosed.
