Most recently, the Saskacheon Request and Gaming Authority (SLGA) said it was still investigating last Christmas’s cyberattack. 온라인카지노 The security breach occurred on December 25, 2021, and targeted IT systems. SLGA says its investigation so far may have leaked information from some customers.
SLGA suffered an online breach on Christmas Day last year, and the company described targeting IT systems and hackers accessing some information about them. Usually, the systems collect information collected from employees, such as names, bank details, and Social Security numbers. However, it is unclear how much data was exposed by the cyberattack.
On Tuesday, SLGA announced that it was directly informing regulated customers who had provided sensitive information over the past five years. In a recent statement, the company explained that the information can include the place of birth, driver’s license, height, weight, eye color, employment history, and even a customer’s criminal record.
In a press release, SLGA also indicates that some of the information accessed by hackers may also include financial statements collected as part of the licensing process for commercial liquor, cannabis or gaming/racing permits. The company chose to let customers know after cyber experts found some information released on the dark web.
SLGA says it has sent letters to a group of customers over the next two years with more information and credit monitoring proposals. In addition, the company has also initiated an indirect notification process for two groups of customers: regulatory customers who have provided sensitive information for more than five years, and other groups of customers who have provided less sensitive data.
The statement ended by saying the company continues to deal with the impact of last Christmas’s cyberattack. They also confirmed that the investigation is expected to continue for a while. If an ongoing investigation finds more information about the leak, SLGA will issue another public statement and inform the customer base.
