Information theft from PageUp and via it, university clients (CMM June 8) continues a closed book, with no detail on exactly what happened. On Tuesday, the UK provider reported to Australian clients and users; “on the balance of probabilities, we believe certain personal data relating to our clients, placement agencies, applicants, references and our employees has been accessed.”
But PageUp adds; “most critical data categories including resumes, financial information, Australian tax file numbers, employee performance reports and employment contracts are not affected in this incident.”
Good-oh but Monash U, which has used PageUp for recruitment is not happy. “We made the decision that we would not reinstate the system until we were satisfied that the incident has been contained and that the Monash system is secure.” As of yesterday, PageUp was not online at Monash.
