Could this happen in NZ

Aside

While scanning my security news feeds I came across this article from azcentral.com which caused me to wince a little. It seems that the Maricopa County Community College District could be spending around $17.1 million, with most of it going on lawyers and services to the millions of people whose personal data was exposed.

The article cites that a breach in 2011 was never addressed properly and this lead to the more costly 2013 event. During April 2013 a server was compromised exposing Social Security numbers and banking information for 2.4 million current and former students and staff from as long as 30 years ago.
