Australian IT vendor Data#3 informed the ASX on Thursday that it had experienced what it dubbed as a “cyber incident”.

“Data#3 Limited advises that it has experienced a cybersecurity network incident, involving an overseas third party, which is currently under investigation,” the company said.

Data#3 added its current advice said the event did not need reporting to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner, as required by Australia’s Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme for breaches that are likely to result in “serious harm” [SK-“Sigh…”]. However, the incident was clearly deemed significant enough to inform the stock market.
