One of the big 4 accountancy firms, Deloitte is one of the victims of the hacker attacks of the recent times. The attack that dates back to November 2016, was a breach of Deloitte’s email systems that gave the hackers access to all the areas of the firm.
What is interesting is that the attack went undetected till March 2016. After the detection though, the firm implemented security protocols, began intensive review of their cybersecurity, and contacted the affected parties and notified the government authorities and regulators.
The hack attacks of the last few years have made us aware of the vulnerability of companies and countries. It will be interesting to see what technology can do to protect against these attacks, it will be technical minds of hackers vs the technical minds of another set of hackers!
