Deloitte hacked, says 'very few' clients affected

LONDON/TORONTO (Reuters) - Global accounting firm Deloitte [DLTE.UL] said on Monday it was the victim of a cyber attack that affected the data of a small number of clients, providing few details on the breach.

Deloitte said in a statement that attackers accessed data from the company’s email platform, confirming some details in a report by the Guardian newspaper, which broke news of the hack on Monday.

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Wall Street’s top regulator, and Equifax Inc ( EFX.N ), one of the largest credit-monitoring bureaus, this month reported that confidential filings and sensitive personal data were compromised by hackers.

Deloitte is a “Big Four” firm that provides accounting, auditing and consulting services, including advice on mergers and acquisitions.

Deloitte said it had implemented a “comprehensive security protocol,” after the incident was discovered, using internal and external experts to help respond.
