NZ Incident: NZ Transport Agency accused of downplaying a “massive” security breach. USB Drive Lost  | Stuff NZ

Reported January 03, 2019 in Stuff Co NZ

A missing NZ Transport Agency computer drive containing information about more than 1000 staff is a much bigger deal than the organisation has admitted.

The USB drive disappeared while being couriered from the agency’s Auckland office to a Wellington security firm producing new staff identity cards.

The data, which was not password protected or encrypted, was a major data privacy breach that warranted an independent review of security measures, and the agency should be offering identity theft insurance to affected employees.
