On January 10, the Central Bank of New Zealand announced that one of the data systems containing “sensitive information” of the bank had been compromised.
Reserve Bank of New Zealand Governor Adrian Orr said the incident has now been averted and the system has also disconnected from the network. However, the bank is still identifying information that may have leaked.

According to Governor Orr, the bank is working closely with cybersecurity experts and relevant authorities to conduct an investigation and take appropriate action.
While assessing the size and nature of the leaked information has yet to come to a conclusion, the official said, it is possible that sensitive personal and business information has been leaked. The bank has also contacted and worked with users of the system on this issue.
The latest report by the New Zealand Government Cybersecurity Agency CERT shows that the number of cyber attacks in the country is up 33% in a year. In August 2020, the stock exchange in this country was also attacked by a network, causing trading activities to be interrupted for 4 consecutive days.
