In response to the news that Dell has announced a potential cybersecurity incident in which an unauthorized party sought to extract Dell.com customer information including names, email addresses and hashed passwords, a cybersecurity expert with CyberSaint offers perspective.
“Industry leaders have the opportunity to show due diligence in the detection, response and recovery areas of their program when incidents such as this occur. Setting an example, it is important for the company to not downplay the effects of a breach concerning personal information – especially the exposed emails and hashed passwords which can open many doors for cyber criminals. It will take further investigation to fully understand the impacts of this event, especially for an organization as large as Dell.”
