TAFE South Australia has revealed that it has suffered a data breach. 2,224 student identification records were impacted. The identification forms include driver’s licenses and passports used for enrolments prior to 2021. The organisation were first notified of the breach when the South Australian Police notified them about it in March 2022. The police had found 24 students credentials on a USB as part of a separate investigation. Further credentials were discovered on another USB in November. TAFE South Australia said that it had contacted all those affected and that security measures are being increased with access to systems that store student ID forms being restricted to only business critical functions. The South Australian government will also waive the cost of replacing state issued identity documents such as driver’s license, learner’s permit and poof-of-age cards.
