Report published; awaiting Government Response.
The recent cyber-attack of TalkTalk’s website, where initially it was feared that the personal details, including bank details, of over four million customers had been hacked and made public, gives rise to questions and concern over the ways companies store and secure information about their customers. TalkTalk has already been subject to two previous attacks this year.
In light of these incidents, the Culture, Media and Sport Committee has decided to hold an inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the TalkTalk data breach and the wider implications for telecoms and internet service providers.
Evidence given by Christopher Graham, Commissioner, and Dr Simon Rice, Group Manager (Technology), Information Commissioner’s Office.
Evidence given by Dido Harding, Chief Executive, TalkTalk
