Following a cyber attack on Toll's corporate servers, the business has revealed that the hackers targeted a server which contained sensitive employee information. 

Toll confirmed that the attackers accessed corporate server files which contain information relating to past and present employees and included details such as name, residential address, age or birthdate and payroll information (including salary, superannuation and tax file number).

The information relates to some current and former employees in certain countries in which Toll operates, including Australia and New Zealand.

The incident does not affect all Toll employees and, based on current findings, casual staff are not impacted.

Despite the hackers accessing this information, Toll stated that there was no evidence that this information had been taken. 

However, the business did confirm last week that some of the stolen data had been published to the dark web and the business was assessing which data that was. 

"As a precaution, we have written to impacted employees (past and current) to provide them with information on how they can protect themselves," Toll said in a statement. 

"As part of this, we have engaged the services of a leading provider of identity and cybersecurity solutions to ensure that impacted people are provided with the appropriate support and data protection measures.

"Toll condemns in the strongest possible terms the actions of the cyber criminals, and we apologise to our people for the concern and inconvenience this situation may be causing them," the business said. 

In response to the attack, Toll had turned off some key digital features, but is slowing turning those back on. 

"We are making good progress with the restoration of our key online systems," Toll said. 

"MyToll customers can now access most features. Track and Trace is now available for a number of services including for our Priority customers, with historical data being progressively uploaded. 

"In our Global Forwarding business, systems tests have been completed and we have restored CargoWise One access across Toll’s global network.

"We have started the process of re-establishing electronic data interchange connections with customers, on a phased basis.

"Most customer-facing applications for our contract logistics customers are up and running, as we finalise testing with our customers," Toll said.
