A significant cyber security incident has occurred within Medibank. The facts are continuing to be established.
I have spoken with the CEO of Medibank, David Koczkar, and the heads of the Australian Signals Directorate and the Australian Federal Police.
Medibank is cooperating with government in responding to this incident. Significant support has been provided by the Australian Signals Directorate’s Australian Cyber Security Centre, and the Department of Home Affairs.
My department is working with all relevant agencies across government.
Specific inquiries about this incident should be directed to Medibank.
This incident is another reminder for Australian governments, businesses and citizens to be vigilant about their cyber safety. Helpful resources can be found at ACSC.
