A networking company gets owned, info on employees and partners exposed

In a recent article I read over the weekend, A St. Louis company who does networking stuff recently reported that they got owned. According to the article, they made 2 billion dollars last year, wonder how much money is going to the cleanup this year?

Belden, a U.S. manufacturer of networking and industrial cable products, said Tuesday that unidentified attackers had accessed and copied data on current
and former employees, and some of its business partners.

Executives did not disclose how many people’s information was compromised. Belden spokesperson Rachael Matthews told CyberScoop the data may have included
sensitive personal information, including bank account information and Social Security numbers.

“Personal information accessed and stolen may have contained such information as names, birthdates, government-issued identification numbers (for example,
Social Security/national insurance), bank account information of North American employees on Belden payroll, home addresses, email addresses and other
general employment-related information,” Matthews said in an email. “Limited company information accessed and stolen related to some of our business partners
include bank account data and, for U.S. partners, their taxpayer ID numbers.”

Matthews said Belden is notifying all affected employees and business partners, and that the company is providing “individuals with free monitoring and
support services, where available.”

There are things that are linked within the article written by Cyberscoop on this one, so why not check it out. Networking giant Belden says hackers accessed data on employees, business partners is the article, and I hope that you find this of value. Thanks so much for reading!
