Notification of a third party data breach

Notification of a third party data breach

On Sunday, 3 December, the Architects Accreditation Council of Australia (AACA) became aware of a cyber incident affecting our third-party IT provider.

To safeguard our members, our people and others, AACA immediately initiated an independent investigation into how our members and others may have been impacted by this incident.

Key lines of AACA’s inquiry into this incident include how and when this breach began, what types of data may have been accessed and stolen, and what steps AACA’s third-party provider has taken to safeguard AACA and our broader professional community.

AACA has engaged external cyber security experts, and is working with relevant government agencies and regulators.

This incident did not impact core AACA systems, or networks, and has not affected AACA’s ability to support our members, or evaluate and process applications in the usual way.

We will continue to provide updated information as we gain greater clarity about the incident.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact AACA by email into our dedicated mailbox: [email protected].
