A cyber attack has targeted a technology group which provides services to government departments, with hackers now believed to hold stolen data.
PNORS Technology Group owns five companies which provide a range of technology services to more than 1,000 clients.
The company confirmed on Saturday that two of its businesses, Datatime and Netway, were the target of a cyber attack on November 3.
“The impacted PNORS Technology Group businesses deal with document and data capture, digital conversion and managed IT support for a number of external clients, including government departments,” PNORS chief executive Paul Gallo said.
“Initial investigations by cyber security experts indicated this incident was limited to systems being encrypted and locked.
“However, overnight the criminals behind the cyber attack released to the company in a private communication a sample of what is believed to be stolen data.”
The Victorian Department of Premier and Cabinet (DPC) said it was determining whether data held by the state had been exposed in the breach
