Another Breach Reported at ACC, Bosses Step Down
DATA LOSS—NEW ZEALANDJune 14, 2012
3 News reports that the Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) has sent details on “a significant amount” of its customers to one customer when he requested his own file. This follows two similar breaches at the company--one exposing more than 100 records and another involving 9,000. Radio New Zealand reports both the chairman of the ACC’s board, John Judge, and its chief executive, Ralph Stewart, have resigned this week, as well as two other executives. Political groups are taking sides over whether the company’s minister Judith Collins should be removed from her post as well. The Labour Party says ACC needs a change at the ministerial level, but Collins says she’s working to change the culture.
