Clearview AI is a startup that compiles billions of photos for facial recognition technology and works with approximately 600 law enforcement agencies across North America, including the Toronto Police Service.
In a recent statement, Clearview said it lost its entire client list to hackers. Tor Ekeland, an attorney working for Clearview, said in a statement to The Daily Beast: “Unfortunately, data breaches are part of life in the 21st century. Our servers were never accessed. We patched the flaw, and continue to work to strengthen our security.”
We have all seen the typical heist movie, where robbers target impenetrable bank vaults, give up on that option, and wait until the goods are transferred in a less secure method (i.e. an armored car). What happened here is akin to targeting armored cars. Knowing that Clearview has dedicated significant resources to protecting their data, with the client list in hand, hackers can now target the potentially less secure clients instead.
Accepting that a data breach is inevitable is becoming the new “normal” as hackers are finding ways around the most secure vaults. Contact us to learn more about how to protect your organization's data from both direct and indirect data breaches.
Researchers at a cybersecurity firm, UpGuard, recently discovered that the Australian market analysis firm, Tetrad, left data for 120 million individuals publicly exposed in Amazon storage. This was not a traditional breach situation, rather this leak was a result of a ‘misconfiguration’ which allowed anyone with a browser to access and download certain files. The exposed data came from various retail clients of Tetrad and included sensitive details such as names, addresses and purchasing habits.
Organizations that collect data on a large scale must ensure that they have proper data retention policies and procedures in place to safeguard against the risk of a data breach (or data leak, as was the case here). This case also shows that your data is only as safe as your weakest link and that business partners' mistakes could negate any policies or procedures of a company.
