Recently A1 Hrvatska suffered data breach after hacker attack. It impacted around 10% of its customers, roughly 200,000 people. Threat actors had access to sensitive personal information of the customers, including names, personal identification numbers, physical addresses, and telephone numbers. Threat actors did not access online accounts and financial information was not exposed. At this time the phone carrier did not disclose details about the security breach.

“Unfortunately, despite advanced protection measures and the constant raising of the level of security, a security incident occurred related to one of the user databases, which compromised part of the personal data of part A1 of users. Intensive work is being done to establish all the facts related to the security incident, and so far computer forensics has determined that potentially compromised data are less than 10 percent of A1 users.” reads the data breach notification published by the company. “The data on display are name and surname, address, OIB and telephone number. We emphasize that information on bank cards and accounts is not compromised because it is not available in the specified database . We will directly inform all users whose personal data is potentially compromised.”

Cybersecurity is important because it protects all categories of data from theft and damage. This includes sensitive data, personally identifiable information (PII), protected health information (PHI), personal information, intellectual property, data, and governmental and industry information systems.

Without a cybersecurity program, your organization cannot defend itself against data breach campaigns, which makes it an irresistible target for cybercriminals.

Cybersecurity is making sure your organization’s data is safe from attacks from both internal and external bad actors. It can encompass a body of technologies, processes, structures, and practices used to protect networks, computers, programs, and data from unauthorized access or damage. The goal of any cybersecurity strategy is to ensure confidentiality, data integrity, and availability.
