Breach Fallout Continues
DATA LOSS—NEW ZEALANDJune 21, 2012
APNZ reports on the resignation of ACC Board Member Murray Hilder, noting “just four of the ACC's board remain…in the wake of the Bronwyn Pullar privacy breach scandal.” Recent breaches have involved details on thousands of ACC clients. Hilder’s resignation comes on the heels of the departures of ACC Chief Executive Ralph Stewart and ACC Board Chairman John Judge and members Rob Campbell and John McCliskie, the report states, and amidst allegations Pullar implied “that it was ACC managers who first suggested a deal with her for the return of leaked data about thousands of clients,” the report states. Meanwhile, The New Zealand Herald reports ACC will offer compensation in the wake of the privacy breach.
