Tens of thousands of employees of private and public organisations have had their personal data exposed as a result of a wide-ranging breach of the MOVEit Transfer tool.
“It is common for an initial breach to spread up and down the supply-chain of the initial target. Once a criminal is in, they will be looking for doors that can open onto new victims. When it comes to protection against these threats, segmenting and encrypting access is essential. By segmenting access, you minimise the amount of data that can be obtained at once and the malware cannot travel not just inside your systems, but also further up and down your supply chain to avoid infecting more companies.”
