Cloud storage error compromises almost 50,000 records belonging to government and major company employees
Australia was recently hit by a huge data breach when a misconfiguration of a cloud storage system reportedly compromised some 50,000 employee records.
This is thought to be the second largest data breach in Australian history.
A number of employee records were compromised for several government departments, including 3,000 from the Department of Finance; 1,470 from the Australian Electoral Commission; and 300 from the National Disability Insurance Agency.
