Commissioner Gives Telstra More Time
DATA LOSS—AUSTRALIAFebruary 10, 2012
After a data breach compromising the personal information of 800,000 Telstra customers, Privacy Commissioner Timothy Pilgrim requested the company supply his office with a report outlining how the breach happened; what data was compromised, if any, and what steps the company has taken to prevent future breaches. Technology Spectator reports that Telstra requested more time to produce the report, which the commissioner has granted. The report on the investigation by the Office of Federal Privacy Commissioner was expected to have been released in January but will now be delayed until March, according to the report.
