Incident: Psychologists’ home details posted online in HBF breach | The West Australian

Australian Information Security Incident Reported: December 19 2018

WA’s biggest health insurer has admitted to a privacy breach that led to the private addresses of psychologists being published on a TripAdvisor-style healthcare website.

HBF said this week that it had notified the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner and written to more than 7000 psychologists after realising it had provided some personal addresses to the online directory Whitecoat.
