Incident report: EMSI – FEBRUARY 4, 2021
Last week, Emsisoft became aware of a data breach on one of their test systems. They used the system to evaluate and benchmark possible solutions relating to the storage and management of the log data generated by our products and services.
Immediately after becoming aware of the breach, they took the affected system offline and started an investigation. They determined that the logged information contained no personal information whatsoever, except for 14 customer email addresses of 7 different organizations. While this number is small, they still believe it is the right thing to inform all their customers about the incident, how exactly it happened, and what they are planning to do in order to prevent similar incidents in the future.
