Australian Agency Mistakenly Released Contact Names Linked to 5,000 Businesses

A “human error” resulted in the Australian Bureau of Statistics unintentionally publishing contact names linked to over 5,000 Queensland organizations. This breach was among the 14 the Bureau has reported to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner over the last 3 years.


The Australian Bureau of Statistics was criticized for its handling of the 2016 census, first of all for the extended retention of names and addresses for a period of 4 years. Besides, after the census its website crashed and suffered from a series of foreign attacks. Fortunately, none of those breaches relates to the handling of any census data, though they highlight errors in the handling of other surveys and demonstrate the agency has a proactive approach to reporting data breaches, which is not mandatory under existing privacy laws.

For example, in one of the breaches early this year, contact names linked to more than 5,000 organizations were disclosed to officers in the Queensland government statistician’s office. The individuals identified were not notified of the breach that was attributed to human error, where personal information was included where it wasn’t requested.

Other breaches include a case of an interviewer losing a folder containing summary details from a participant in the household income and expenditure survey, 2 instances in the survey where participants received envelopes relating to their businesses’ participation that also contained letters to other organizations, sending out survey forms that had been incorrectly pre-filled with information about other participants, and inadvertent disclosure of personal details of individuals as part of a household survey and a survey into motor vehicle use.

eyemanozzy avataryes , isn't it absolutely amazing that the entire population of australia (excluding politicians) were concerned about their stats staying available for 4 years !!i wonder why ? normally a census is conducted for the stats on whatever the politicians need to know and should all be filled out within 24 hours,however,due to bungling efforts of this mob and ibm who designed the hack-proof system,overseas enthusiasts enjoyed a ddos attack on the servers rendering it useless !! lol
so the census went for 2 months after which some people could still not register online lol
so, if the census was only to be filled in by australians in australia , who opened it to overseas people ?
what an f'n joke this government is!! oh well, at least we can download torrents for now because meta data is not being stored and copyrighters must file eveidence in court for each breech seperately, so it's too time comsuming and expensive !!
rotflmao !!!
blessed is our little sunburnt country with it's tripple tax tier !!
