Thanks for visiting Maurice Blackburn Careers
Maurice Blackburn is among a number of organisations that have been impacted by a data security incident at recruitment system provider PageUp.
PageUp has confirmed that some personal data for Maurice Blackburn job applicants, placement agencies and employees who applied for positions through the PageUp system may have be affected, following the detection of unauthorised activity on PageUp’s IT infrastructure.
Maurice Blackburn takes data security very seriously and as a precautionary measure we temporarily suspended all access points between Maurice Blackburn and PageUp, whilst we sought further information on the measures PageUp were taking to prevent this issue in the future. .
We have now received written assurances from PageUp and their independent external security experts Klein & Co that:
- The original threat has been contained and eradicated;
- No further security issues have been identified on the PageUp system;
- The PageUp system is safe to use; and
- Further security measures have been implemented to help guard against a similar incident in the future.
The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC), The Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) and IDCARE has also issued a joint statement on the PageUp incident.
Based on all of this information, Maurice Blackburn have reinstated our Careers portal using the PageUp recruitment system.
Maurice Blackburn is not aware of any of our data in PageUp having been specifically affected. However, we do recommend that any person who has previously applied online for a position with Maurice Blackburn check to ensure that there has been no recent unusual activity concerning their personal information and to monitor the use of their personal information. The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) provides a guide on how to do this and what to watch out for.
If you have further queries on this matter, you can access the PageUp website, or contact PageUp directly through their dedicated Call Centre on 1300 893 787. You may also contact Maurice Blackburn at firstname.lastname@example.org with any other questions you may have.
