Paddy Power contacts 650,000 customers over data theft

Anh Nguyen | Aug. 4, 2014
Betting firm Paddy Power has revealed that it is contacting 649,055 customers who were affected by a cyber attack on its IT systems four years ago.

"A breach on this scale, combined with the lack of transparency demonstrated by the company will certainly affect its professional reputation."

He added: "The statement from the company informing the public that the company is very confident in their current security systems may still point at a lack of understanding of the complexities and sophistication of modern cybercriminals. [The systems] require adequate critical information protection solutions in place, underpinned by a well thought-through set of policies and processes that are regularly reviewed and tested."
