Message from ASC CEO

I would like to provide an update on the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) investigation into an incident of unauthorised access to one of the ASC’s email accounts.

With close support from the Australian Cyber Security Centre and Microsoft we have been undertaking a thorough review into this incident.

At this stage of the investigation we have determined it is not possible to conclusively establish if any personal information contained in the email account was extracted by an unauthorised person.

As a precaution we are making it a priority to notify and support individuals who may have been impacted.

We have established that the email account contained references to approximately 18,900 individuals. The vast majority of these individuals are referenced by either their name and/or birthdate, or other basic contact information.
