LEAKED SHELL INTERNAL WARNING ON DATA THEFT: DO NOT BE ALARMED

LEAKED SHELL INTERNAL WARNING FROM ROYAL DUTCH SHELL PLC CHIEF ETHICS & COMPLIANCE OFFICER RICHARD WISEMAN (RIGHT) REGARDING THE LEAK OF THE SHELL GLOBAL ADDRESS BOOK:

I do not feel that there is any need to be alarmed

Colleagues,

I am writing to inform you of an incident involving misuse of company data.

It has become clear recently that the Global Address List, containing contact information of everyone in Shell and some contractors, joint ventures and other third parties, has been downloaded without authorisation and distributed to some external parties.  We do not know who did this.   We are investigating and are raising this theft of information with the relevant data protection authorities.  The incident is receiving some media coverage. read more

Threat to the privacy and safety of thousands of Shell employees

POSTINGS TODAY ON SHELL BLOG…

It is Shell that has acted in a cavalier way with other people’s personal data, otherwise the Shell Address Book could not have been circulated to hostile parties, including Nigerian activists.

John, given your oft-expressed criticism of Shell’s supposed lack of concern for safety and disregard for its legal responsibilities, can you explain why you chose to trumpet the theft of Shell’s employee database on your website and even made facetious offers to pass it on to others? You must surely know that this information is a) stolen property and b) a potential threat to the privacy and safety of the thousands of people whose personal information it contains. If Shell had behaved in such a cavalier way with other people’s personal data, you would no doubt have jumped all over them. So why the double standard? And since the database is stolen property, will you be returning it to Shell and will you provide information to the authorities to assist them in investigating the theft? After all, you can’t expect Shell to respect the rule of law if you aren’t prepared to do so yourself. read more

LAGOS, Feb 7 (Reuters) – A Nigerian militant group said on Sunday it had attacked a major Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L) oil pipeline in the Niger Delta but the Anglo-Dutch company said it had no reports of any such sabotage on its infrastructure.

The Joint Revolutionary Council, a coalition of ex-militants and community leaders, said in a statement it had disabled a trunk line in the Obunoma area of Rivers state connecting several flow stations to the Bonny export terminal. read more
