Hannaford breach an insider job ?

Thursday, April 3, 2008

I have been tracking the Hannaford data breach from quite sometime now, have been many revelations. But now there is a new turn in the case, it seems like the data theft was result of an insider breach. It is quite strange because all of a sudden if you say it was insider breach when the world already knows what had happened ?

This reason they are pushing to show it a insider breach is so that their PCI and all those compliance stay in place, their reputation is already gone but atleast they don´t loose the license to do business.

Let us see how the final report turns up but I am sure the CSO is trying to save his ass due to the blunders they did and ofcourse justify the IT Security expenses he made during his tenure.

My previous post describes more about insider threats.
