Data breach is now a daily occurrence in today's society, along with the attacks with ransomware.
Διαβάζουμε σχεδόν καθημερινά για επιτυχημένες attacks που έχουν σαν αποτέλεσμα την κλοπή πληροφοριών. Ανάμεσα σε αυτές τις information there are names, dates of birth, social security numbers and more.
In the Hackney municipality of London, a recent data breach has had very devastating consequences for a particular couple.
However, during the adoption process in 2016, a solicitor appointed by Hackney Borough Council mistakenly included a copy of the application form. The publication says the exposed sensitive data included the couple's names, addresses, phone numbers, dates of birth and occupations.
The violation was serious enough for the couple who spoke both to the council and to the police finally decided to move and change adjectives as it was the safest solution for their adopted child.
Hackney City Council acknowledged their mistake and paid the couple £ 106,000 (.) In compensation, which helped make the move easier. They also apologized to the couple for the "human error".
Although this data breach was not the result of a malicious attacker, it shows that information leaks can have a very big impact on people's everyday lives.
It also shows us that you can have the best perimeter security in your infrastructure, but if your staff is not trained, there is no point, since the data will leak in some other way.
