Following notification earlier this week that files belonging to Sydney based recruitment agency, Sales Inventory Profile, concerning positions within the real estate industry had been incorrectly secured, First National immediately responded through every appropriate channel to ensure that its network had not breached or participated in any notifiable data breach.

The network has completed every action necessary, from its perspective, including contacting the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner.

“As this breach is not within First National’s responsibility, we, like all networks within the real estate industry are dependent upon the Sales Inventory Profile organisation complying with the necessary security arrangements” said network chief executive Ray Ellis.

“We are working with our affected offices, and more importantly, any applicants that have been affected”.
