NAB reveals 13,000-person data breach at 6PM Friday

Dataset uploaded to the servers of two service providers. And not burying news, promise.
Reported in: iTnews

NAB disclosed a data breach late Friday after a dataset containing the personal details of approximately 13,000 customers was uploaded to the servers of “two data service companies”.

Chief data officer, Glenda Crisp, said the compromised data “included customer name, date of birth, contact details and in some cases, a government-issued identification number, such as a driver’s licence number.”

Crisp attributed the issue to “human error”.
