Information on potential data breach

06-Jun-2018

Linfox is assessing advice received by PageUp, a supplier that helps us process job applications, that they’ve experienced a system breach.

We are among a number of large organisations that use PageUp. PageUp has provided more information here. You can also access information from the Australian Cyber Security Centre on the issue here.

At this stage, PageUp is yet to inform Linfox if any personal information of applicants for Linfox roles has been compromised. Linfox is issuing this information based on the information we have available.

Once we know the extent of the issue we will email all applicants whose applications have been submitted through PageUp to let them know how this issue may affect them.  

At this stage, PageUp has not confirmed that Linfox job applicants’ data has been compromised.

What we have done in response

Once we were made aware of PageUp’s system breach, we took the following actions to minimise any possible harm:

  • Brought together a cross-functional team to manage the issue
  • Removed access to PageUp's systems from our website
  • Deactivated the PageUp system
  • Sought advice from the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC)
  • Contacted PageUp requesting further information surrounding the privacy impact of this incident

We’ll provide updates as new information becomes available.

In the meantime, if you have any questions, you can contact our Recruitment team on 1300 227 337.
