Carphone Warehouse have been fined £400,000 for not securing its data

By January 12, 2018Uncategorized

Linked to a breach in 2015 (whereby personal details of up to 2.4 million Carphone Warehouse customers may have been accessed in a cyber-attack), Carphone Warehouse has now been fined £400,000 by the Information and Commissioner’s Office.  The company was found not to have adequately secured its data.  The size of the organisation does have bearing on the measures of security expected.

Does your company have adequate security safeguards in place?
