Air Pacific confirms suspension

Fiji Times, By Felix Chaudhary, October 13, 2011

NATIONAL carrier Air Pacific has confirmed the suspension of an employee suspected of removing sensitive and confidential documents from the airline’s computer database. In a statement released by an airline spokesman, Air Pacific also confirmed that the data stolen included documents relating to the Essential National Industries Employment Decree, individual pilot and flight attendant salaries, employee contracts and other confidential company financial and commercial documents. “The investigation and subsequent suspension were implemented to protect the company’s confidential information and the privacy of other employees. “The company’s internal investigation and independent external forensic IT evaluation confirmed that the security breaches were serious and the unauthorised access and removal of company documents violated numerous Air Pacific policies and procedures, as well as the terms of the individual’s employment agreement.” “Because of the nature of documents improperly removed ù documents containing sensitive and confidential information with content unrelated to the decree ù the breach had the potential to seriously harm the airline,” the statement read.
