Deloitte has confirmed that the company has been targeted by a sophisticated hack attack. The cyber attact compromised the confidential emails and plans of some of Deloitte blue-chip clients.
For Deloitte, one of the world´s „big four“ accountancy and consulting firms, this news is a black eye since a major part of Deloitte's business is selling cyber security. If details in the Guardian's report are true, Deloitte failed to deploy elementary security measures such as requiring two-factor authentication. The firm also appears to have guarded large pools of data with a single password.
Using Babelnet, a secure platform for sharing sensitive data will help such big companies, which will always be the primary targets of cyber attacks, deal with these risks.
