News: The Consequences Of The Superdrug Data Breach

Martin Jartelius
It was reported that Superdrug had warned its online customers to change their passwords after criminals claimed to have obtained their personal details. The chain said the group claimed they had stolen details of 20,000 customers.

“Based on the company information, the data held has very little value to the attackers, which is likely why they have turned to extortion. Obtaining this data and using it to blackmail data controllers will likely be a rising trend due to the GDPRs fines and the limited understanding of what the fines are based on. Data which earlier held little or no financial value to an attacker can now, due to the legislation put in place to protect it, be financially more interesting for attackers to obtain."
