An incident occurred at our office on Thursday January 26th that was the subject of a Global News story on Friday January 27th.
Confidential information for one particular customer was inadvertently routed to a fax machine at Global News in error. We notified both the customer and Global of the error and Global indicated they were going to keep the information secure for us to retrieve – which we did. Global then chose to treat the circumstance as a news story and interviewed us, our customer and one of their employees.
IBEX personnel feel awful about this incident, and have apologized to the affected customer. The privacy and security of customer information is our highest priority, and we take the responsibility for safeguarding that information very seriously. In light of this event, we have adopted a policy to never fax T4 information to customers. That information will now only be able to be retrieved from our secure website.
