Insider Data Leak at Real Estate Firm

A New Zealand real estate company has fired an employee who leaked the sales data that has sparked a controversy about the number of overseas Chinese buying houses in New Zealand.

The CEO of the real estate company said information held on behalf of clients and customers was "sacrosanct." But seems the company was unaware of the insider data breach until the information appeared in news articles.

" clients contacted the company to say they were "disenchanted and concerned that their data had been compromised". ." - Otago Daily News
