In June 2018 there were media reports concerning a data breach at PageUp People, a HR service provider.

PageUp People provided the following in November 2018:

Forensic Expert confirmed no specific evidence of data taken in PageUp security accident.

A detailed forensic investigation on the PageUp security incident in May 2018 has concluded that while an attacker was successful in installing tools that could exfiltrate data, no specific evidence was found that data was exfiltrated. We thank you for your patience as we worked through this process.

The investigation was conducted by expert forensic analysts Klein & Co. who collected and analysed all available digital forensic evidence related to the incident.
