Tribal (AIM: TRB), a leading provider of software and services to the international education market, announces that it has been made aware of the unauthorised disclosure and likely access of personal information of approximately 9,300 individuals, held by Tribal Campus, an Australian subsidiary of the Group, in its capacity as a provider of a student information system to MEGT, an educational organisation in Australia.


Upon discovery of the unauthorised disclosure, immediate steps were taken by Tribal to secure the data and external forensic cyber security experts were appointed to investigate the circumstances and scope of the incident. While those investigations are ongoing, the individuals that may have been affected have been contacted and advised on the steps they should take.  The Group continues to work closely with the regulator in Australia.


Tribal confirms that this is an isolated incident relating to the migration of data for a single Tribal Campus customer in Australia involving a non-production system. No other customers, products or regions have been affected. Whilst there can be no certainty as to the financial impact, based on current estimates, costs to Tribal are not expected to be material.


The Group will be announcing its interim results on 20th August and trading for the full year remains in line with the board's expectations.
