Verizon Data Leak Exposes 14 Million Customers After Security Lapse

After Verizon’s data breach exposing  the personal data of 14 million customers, web security company High-Tech Bridge’s CEO, Ilia Kolochenko, has commented that identifying and preventing such risks can be easy if done proactively:

Ilia Kolochenko, CEO at High-Tech Bridge:

“This is a remarkable, albeit sad, example of shadow IT created by third-parties in the era of cloud. Such incidents are very difficult to prevent and mitigate. Even if you meticulously control the security policies of your suppliers and request records of their external and internal audits, human mistake on their side remains unpredictable and thus virtually unpreventable. We will likely see a further growth of similar incidents, many of which can trigger severe financial consequences imposed by law and regulations such as GDPR. To help companies identify similar risks in a proactive manner, ImmuniWeb® Discovery continuously searches for unprotected cloud storage attributable to a company or its subsidiaries.”
