Issued Friday 8 June 2018
Statement attributed to Acting CEO Steve Dalton:
The City of Casey has removed access to it's online recruitment system after the system provider, PageUp, alerted Council on Monday to a possible serious security data breach which occurred in mid to late May.
Council takes its obligations under the Privacy and Data Protection Act 2014 very seriously and has contacted recent applicants to advise that their personal data may have been compromised.
The City of Casey is meeting with the provider to determine the impact on applicants and to seek explanations as to why it took more than a week to inform Council of the breach.
Council has urged those affected to be vigilant about any unusual activity relating to their personal information.
