It’s Time For Companies To Tighten Data Security
It may be time for companies to put in place stringent data security measures as what is in place is not enough. This is evidenced by the many companies that have in the recent past been affected by data breaches exposing their customers’ information to hackers. A good example is the Target POS data breach from which information of about 110 million customers was obtained. There is the Sony breach that ended up in the information of 70 million Sony PlayStation Network users having their personal information stolen.
Although the security breach at AT&T is relatively small compared to what we have seen in the past, it is nevertheless a cause for concern. This is because the company has not yet determined how the stolen information was to be used and whether it has been used at all. It only says that the concerned part is not working at the company anymore and that affected customers are being contacted. However, all customers of the company have been asked to place fraud alerts on their accounts and hopefully it will prevent any further malicious activity from being carried out through AT&T accounts.
