– Nissan Oceania confirms data breach affecting 100,000 individuals
– Breach caused by unauthorized access to IT servers

In a recent announcement, Nissan Oceania confirmed that a data breach in December 2023 affected approximately 100,000 individuals, including current and former employees, dealers, and customers. The breach was a result of unauthorized access to the company’s local IT servers, causing downtime. While the extent and type of incident were initially unknown, the Akira ransomware group later claimed responsibility for the attack and leaked data supposedly stolen from the company. Approximately 10% of the affected individuals had government identification compromised, including Medicare cards, driver’s licenses, passports, and tax file numbers. Nissan has taken steps to assist affected individuals, offering access to identity and cyber support services, free credit monitoring, and reimbursement for ID replacement if needed. The company is continuing to investigate the breach in collaboration with government authorities and external cyber forensic experts.
