The hackers behind the graphic design website, Canva, that leaked 139 million users’ details including usernames, emails and encrypted passwords have been identified as Gnosticplayers. You may recognise the hackers name as Gnosticplayers has been in the news this year already for attempting to sell nearly one billion stolen data records on the dark web. Canva are continuing to investigate the data breach but assure that no customer designs or payment details were accessed.
Recent studies have found that 25% of employees would sell company data for £1000 and even 5% would pass on data to third parties for free. Another finding from the report by nCipher, is that 71% of the UK C-suite would be willing to cover up a data breach. This could seem understandable given the damage a data breach can have on an organisation, however, the fines from the ICO for not declaring a breach can be just as devastating.

We will be back next week with another round up of cyber-security news.
