  • Hacker got in 27 May 2017
  • 50-60k email from 3 Australian employees were forwarded automatically outside the company
  • System door closed 1st March 2018
  • Employee information included tax file number, superannuation account numbers and Next of Kin details.
  • Australia firms “…must take all reasonable steps to complete the assessment within 30 calendar days…”  Svitzer reported 15 March.
  • In Europe under GDPR it is 72hrs to report the breach.

My Thoughts

Now that isn’t a long time for a full assessment to be completed but I couldn’t find on the OAIC site a timeline just for a breach notification. Is there one?

I had a look on Svitzer's press releases and couldn't find one.

A fast & planned response is essential as identity theft helps financial crime and other frauds.
