Please note by clicking the above vacancies, you will be leaving the Glen Eira City Council website and accessing a third party website operated by e-recruitment provider PeopleStreme.
In late June 2018 Council transitioned to a new e-recruitment provider PeopleStreme. Council previously used e-recruitment services through another organisation named PageUp.
Data Breach by e-recruitment provider PageUp
Council has used e-recruitment services through an external company named PageUp since approximately 2007. PageUp discovered unauthorised activity on their IT infrastructure on 23 May 2018 and on 4 June Council was notified of the breach. PageUp reports that they immediately involved forensic specialists, government authorities and law enforcement agencies to investigate the matter.
Whilst it is unclear at this stage exactly what data has been compromised, it is possible that data collected in relation to advertised Council vacancies have been affected. Only data related to information that candidates provided when first applying for roles at Council on PageUp’s e-recruitment system is affected. It does not relate to Payglobal or any of our payroll data or employee data held on Council’s IT systems. We understand from PageUp’s notifications that if data has been compromised, it is limited to application details input into their e-recruitment website, as resumes and application documents are stored on an unaffected server. This data breach affects multiple councils and organisations.
PageUp’s public notice and Frequently Asked Questions, are available here. https://www.pageuppeople.com/unauthorised-activity-on-it-system/
Update Data Breach by e-recruitment provider PageUp
The Victorian Government believes that a significant number of Victorian Government current and former staff and job applicants who have applied for jobs with various Victorian Government organisations have had their data exposed to hackers.
The Victorian Government recommends that anyone who has used a PageUp system or applied for a job with any of the impacted companies should update their password details via PageUp’s systems.
Individuals who think they might be impacted can also contact the Office of the Victorian Information Commissioner via firstname.lastname@example.org or 1300 006 842 for additional information on how to protect their information.
The Department of Premier and Cabinet is discussing the incident involving PageUp with national identity compromise support service, IDCARE. IDCARE is Australia and New Zealand’s national identity compromise and cyber support service. IDCARE publishes expert advice for organisations and individuals who experience identity compromise.
