New South Wales Health has confirmed being impacted by a cyber attack involving the file transfer system owned by Accellion.

The system was widely used to share and store files by organisations around the world, including NSW Health, the government entity said on Friday afternoon.

“Following the NSW government’s advice earlier this year around a world-wide cyber attack that included NSW government agencies, NSW Health is notifying people whose data may have been accessed in the global Accellion cyber attack,” it said in a statement.

The NSW Police Force and Cyber Security NSW have set up Strike Force Martine to determine the impact on NSW government agencies that were caught up in the attack on Accellion.
