Turbulent times for airline
British Airways was fined £183m last year because of a site diversion hack planted on the BA website duping 500,000 customers into handing over personal data to digital fraudsters. And yesterday we heard about the EasyJet “highly sophisticated cyber-attack” which has affected approximately 9 million of their customers. “there is no evidence that any personal information of any nature has been misused.” said EasyJet. They first become aware of the breach in January and took steps to halt the attack but were only able to uncover whose credit card details were stolen by April. The impact and severity of this beach is yet to be seen.
“Cyber attacks aren’t anything new for organisations but in light of the current climate we are all being extra vigilant in our security as most of us continue to work from home. said Tony English, CEO of Axial Systems.
Businesses still need to ensure that they have the right tools and technology to support and protect their organisations and customers from such attacks. Axial’s Network Detection and Response solutions are designed to detect threats automatically and in real time before they do damage as well as providing scope and scale of an attack.”
