Life Saving Victoria has confirmed it was the target of a cyber attack late last month. 

The organisation said the incident on November 28 involved a server being subject to unauthorised access “by malicious actors”.

Life Saving Victoria CEO Catherine Greaves said immediate steps were taken to contain the database.

“We also immediately commenced investigations to determine what information may have been subject to unauthorised access,” she said.

“The extent of the personal information is limited and does not pose a serious threat to the individuals.”

Life Saving Victoria said it contacted all of those affected by the breach by direct email and provided advice on how to limit the risk of harm.

“We have also reported the incident to the Office of the Australian Information Commission and the Australian Cyber Security Centre,” Ms Greaves said.

“LSV would like to express our disappointment that the situation has occurred and we sincerely regret any inconvenience this may have caused.”

Confirmation of the incident comes two days after St Vincent’s Health revealed it had been the victim of a cyber attack.

St Vincent’s Health operates hospitals and aged care centres across Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.

It said it had uncovered evidence that “some data” had been removed from its system late on Thursday.

But the organisation said it was unable to say what type of information had been stolen or whether it included personal private data.
