Information on potential data breach06-Jun-2018
Linfox is assessing advice received by PageUp, a supplier that helps us
process job applications, that they’ve experienced a system breach.
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
- 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
