Outsourcer Interserve fined £4.4m for failing to stop cyber-attack

The Guardian

Britain’s data watchdog has fined the construction group Interserve £4.4m after a cyber-attack that enabled hackers to steal the personal and financial information of up to 113,000 employees.

The attack occurred when Interserve ran an outsourcing business and was designated a “strategic supplier to the government with clients including the Ministry of Defence”. Bank account details, national insurance numbers, ethnic origin, sexual orientation and religion were among the personal information compromised.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) said Interserve Group broke data protection law because the company failed to put appropriate measures in place to prevent the cyber-attack, which happened two years ago.
