Vendor Mistake Leads to Data Leak Affecting Millions of Verizon Customers

print
At least 6 million Verizon customers had their personal information compromised after a vendor misconfigured a cloud server and left customer records unsecured. This cloud leak exposed customer information such as names, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, and account PINs.

While the vendor, not Verizon, was the cause of this leak, Verizon is left dealing with the consequences. That’s why developing and implementing a formal vendor review process is a key step in taking your organization’s cybersecurity to the next level.
