The company that oversees two of three SkyTrain lines on behalf of TransLink has carried out an investigation after concerns were raised about a possible breach of personal information.
Last month an employee of the B-C Rapid Transit Company opened a file containing staff personal information, for which the person did not have permission to access.
In an email, TransLink says the employee notified management immediately and the file was secured.
We’re told there’s no evidence the information has been shared externally or used for fraudulent or illegal purposes.
A “privacy breach investigation” was launched and the office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner was alerted.
Each affected employee has been contacted and they’ve been offered credit monitoring.
