Stipend data breach acknowledged

The Ministry of Border Control & Labour acknowledges that a data breach occurred today (Tuesday, 12 April) between approximately 9:32am and 9:44am. A mass email sent to 3,329 individuals receiving the displaced tourism workers stipend to notify them of this month’s payment date inadvertently displayed the email addresses of all recipients.

The breach was due to human error and the Ministry has reported the matter to the Office of the Ombudsman. An apology was sent to all email recipients advising them of the breach and notifying them that the Ministry is making procedural changes to avoid such situations in the future.
