Privacy Commissioner investigates Telstra data breach

12 December 2011: Australian Privacy Commissioner, Timothy Pilgrim, has announced: “I have opened a formal investigation into the Telstra data breach.  At a briefing today Telstra has assured our office that the immediate problem has been rectified and that personal data is no longer accessible.  I have asked that Telstra also provide me with a detailed written report on the incident, including how it occurred, what information, if any, was compromised and what steps they have taken to prevent a reoccurrence.  I will consider all the information provided by Telstra and hope to be in a position to issue an investigation report in late January 2012.”
