PNORS Technology Group, along with internal and external security experts, are continuing to investigate a cyber attack, which occurred overnight on 3 November, impacting our Datatime and Netway businesses.

Following the cyber attack, we immediately activated an incident response which included notifying impacted clients and engaging external cyber security experts to assist in dealing with the issue. We notified and are continuing to work with the relevant state and federal authorities, including the Australian Cyber Security Centre, Federal Police, the Victorian and Federal Government’s cyber experts.

The impacted PNORS Technology Group businesses deal with document and data capture, digital conversion and managed IT support for a number of external clients, including government departments.

In the early hours of Saturday morning, the criminals behind the cyber attack released to the company, in a private communication, a sample of what is believed to be stolen data.

We followed strict privacy protocols and notified the Office of Australian Information Commissioner to disclose the data breach.

The extent of the data breach is still being investigated and we are working closely with all authorities to assess how many of our clients have been impacted and the nature of the data that has been stolen.

Advice from our independent security experts have confirmed nothing has been released in the public domain at this point in time.

When we were informed about the cyber attack we immediately shut down and isolated all our internal systems and took further measures to secure our network and data, along with pausing all data processing.

We will be monitoring this ongoing incident 24/7 and will continue to provide updates as more information comes to hand.
