- STATEMENT FROM DAVID YUILE, CEO AAPT
- IT WAS BROUGHT TO OUR ATTENTION BY OUR SERVICE PROVIDER, MELBOURNE IT, AT APPROXIMATELY 9.30PM LAST NIGHT THAT THERE HAD BEEN A SECURITY INCIDENT AND UNAUTHORISED ACCESS TO SOME AAPT BUSINESS CUSTOMER DATA STORED ON SERVERS AT MELBOURNE IT.
- AAPT IMMEDIATELY INSTRUCTED MELBOURNE IT TO SHUT DOWN THE SERVERS WHEN WE WERE NOTIFIED OF THE INCIDENT.
- PRELIMINARY FINDINGS SUGGEST IT WAS TWO FILES THAT WERE COMPROMISED AND THE DATA IS HISTORIC, WITH LIMITED PERSONAL CUSTOMER INFORMATION. FURTHER, THE SERVERS ON WHICH THE FILES WERE STORED HAVE NOT BEEN USED OR CONNECTED TO AAPT FOR AT LEAST 12 MONTHS.
- WE ARE UNDERTAKING A THOROUGH INVESTIGATION INTO THE INCIDENT WITH MELBOURNE IT AND THE RELEVANT AUTHORITIES TO ESTABLISH EXACTLY THE TYPE AND EXTENT OF DATA THAT HAS BEEN COMPROMISED, HOW THE SECURITY INCIDENT HAPPENED AND WHAT FURTHER MEASURES ARE REQUIRED TO PREVENT ANY FUTURE INCIDENTS.
- AAPT IS EXTREMELY CONCERNED ABOUT THIS INCIDENT AND IS TREATING THIS MATTER WITH THE UTMOST SERIOUSNESS.
- AAPT WILL BE CONTACTING ANY IMPACTED CUSTOMERS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
