Copy of My1Login Press Release (August 2016)
Accountancy software firm, Sage, has suffered a data breach, in which "personal details and bank account information for employees of as many as 300 large UK companies may have been compromised."
Sage announced that they were "investigating unauthorised access to customer information using an internal login”. City of London police are currently investigating to determine who was responsible.
We are delighted to announce that My1Login has been selected as a G-Cloud 8 supplier – the UK Government procurement framework for public-sector bodies.
My1Login’s Identity & Access Management solution is now available to procure through this latest framework agreement on the Digital Marketplace.
Data breaches where user credentials have been stolen and leaked online are all too common, and the aftermath follows the same pattern. The Service Provider will investigate, invalidate the affected login credentials and require users to reset passwords. But, what happens when credentials are stolen from applications that are no longer in use in your organisation, applications that were probably long abandoned? There's no action required and no need to be concerned, right?
“The password you have entered isn’t correct. Please try again.”
A message that doesn’t fail to cause a sinking feeling in even the strongest of stomachs.
One of our highly-regulated customers, Betsson Group, will take to the stage at InfoSec 16 this week to explain the business benefits realised by using My1Login to solve security and compliance challenges.
For the fourth year in a row, My1Login will be exhibiting at InfoSecurity Europe 2016. It's Europe's number one information security event and is being held at the Olympia, London from 7th - 9th June.
The Original Hack
On the 5th June 2012, it was reported that 6.5 million LinkedIn usernames and passwords had been stolen by Russian ‘black hat’ hackers. The passwords were hashed with SHA-1, but a salt was not used - a weak practice that LinkedIn have since changed.
For the fourth year in a row, My1Login will be exhibiting at InfoSecurity Europe 2016. It's Europe's number one information security event and is being held at the Olympia, London from 7th - 9th June. We're looking forward to welcoming old and new faces to Stand B285!
As well as exhibiting, we’ve got something exciting happening for us at this year’s event:
Another Day, Another Hack?
That’s how it seems at least. We posted last year about entering an open season on hacking; hackers didn’t discriminate, anyone from Sony right down to a country pub were targeted by hackers for any number of reasons and it doesn’t seem to be showing signs of stopping. If anything, hacking is becoming even more prevalent, despite companies being more aware of the threat. The latest high profile target; UserVoice.
