Sage Group PLC Suffers a Data Breach

Sage Group PLC Suffers a Data Breach

Sage Group PLC (LSE SGE.L),  a FTSE 100 company, has lost personal details and bank account information for employees of as many as 300 companies in the United Kingdom as part of a data breach.

Sage provides business management software for accounting and payroll services to companies in 23 countries.

On Friday, the Newcastle-based group notified around 200 of its current UK business customers that their information - including employee bank account details and salary information - may have been affected by a data breach.

Interestingly enough, Sage Group provided an article on what to do after a security breach back in 2015, which can be read here. Hope they are using their own advice.

The breach has not been mentioned on Sage Group's web site.
