Potential Data Security Issue

June 6, 2018


Cleanaway is among a number of large Australian organisations who may have been impacted by a data security incident at human resources technology provider PageUp.

Cleanaway uses PageUp to manage job applications and candidate information. Upon learning of the data security incident, Cleanaway suspended all connections with PageUp’s systems. We have urgently requested further information from PageUp about the nature and extent of the security incident. Cleanaway is also conducting its own investigations.

At this time, Cleanaway is not aware of any fraudulent activity relating to anyone’s data occurring as a result of the security breach. However, we recommend that any person who has applied online for a position with Cleanaway [in the past two years] check to ensure that there has been no recent unusual activity concerning their personal information and maintain a close watch on that information.

If you have further queries on this matter, you can access information via the PageUp website, as well as view our FAQ’s or please contact Cleanaway on candidates@cleanaway.com.au. The ACCC also has some useful information about data privacy here, and you may also refer to guidance information from The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC).
