Data breach affects 245,000 UK customers


According to cybersecurity experts this was one of the biggest data breaches in the UK involving financial information.

Though little has been publicly disclosed about the attack itself and the attacker(s), the attack evidenced the need to change the mindset within the information security industry to develop a better security model, one that is equipped to deal with the threat posed by the modern-day hacker where the security perimeter gets breached.

The company's incident response received criticism as it was initially quite confused though the company were quick to act upon the criticism, learning from the feedback received and incorporating the lessons into their ongoing response.
