The Dialog Group (Dialog) today confirmed that the company has experienced a cyber security incident in which an unauthorised third party may have accessed company data, potentially affecting fewer than 20 clients and 1,000 current Dialog employees as well as former employees.
Among Dialog’s customers in Australia are the NSW Electoral Commission, the Department of Human Services, Queensland Health, Virgin Australia, NAB, Suncorp, Alfred Health, University of Tasmania, and Rio Tinto. The company was bought by Singtel in April for $325 million and employs more than a thousand IT specialists.
On Friday 7 October 2022 we became aware that a very small sample of Dialog’s data, including some employee personal information, was published on the Dark Web.
Dialog has notified the relevant authorities and is supporting those who may be impacted to protect against the risk of fraudulent activity.
