Deloitte Suffers Catastrophic Data Breach

The accounting firm, which is registered in London and has its global headquarters in New York, has become the latest subject of a cyber security attack which has supposedly compromised 5 million emails.

According to a report from Guardian, the British daily newspaper, the security Breach had been kept under wraps by the Deloitte Touche administrators since it was discovered in March.

Daniela_oliiver / PixabayAlthough the full details of the security breach – which has been codenamed Windham now – still remain sketchy, it has come to light that the Deloitte's emails systems (whose mails are stored on Microsoft's Azure Cloud) do not employ multi-factor authentication technology which plays a vital role in securing enterprise mails.

Therefore it's becoming obvious that Deloitte Touche is trying hard to downplay the incident saying the cyber attack has impacted only a few clients, whereas the truth could reveal a surprising number.

Basics like implementing a multi-factor authentication for protecting your email systems which may seem trivial (and often repeated) but can go a long way in safeguarding your enterprises against various security threats.
