Costa Coffee Applicant Details Hacked in PageUp Breach
Ed Targett reports:
The personal details of Costa Coffee and Premier Inn job applicants have been stolen after a data breach of owner Whitbread’s online recruitment system, run by Australia’s PageUp, the company confirmed today.
Bedfordshire-headquartered multinational Whitbread was hit after PageUp was hacked last month, in an incident that exposed the details of current and prospective employees.
Details exposed include name, email address, physical address, telephone number and employment information. A Whitbread spokesman told Computer Business Review: “We’re not disclosing the number potentially affected.”

Me and my friends data was breached. I demand full details of what information was hacked, how it was hacked, and what has been done to recover my private data. There must be a process to receive compensation from Costa Coffee. There must be some responsibility by Costa Coffee, if we share our private information we expect it to be kept privately and confidentially!
