Regus suffers staff data breach via third party
Serviced offices and co-working space provider Regus has suffered a data breach that saw job performance data on more than 900 employees of Regus owner IWG published online.
The incident occured after IWG commissioned mystery shopping business Applause to audit sales staff performance using covert filming. However, the results – listing names, work contact details and performance data – were accidentally leaked through task management website Trello. A spreadsheet containing the information could be mined via Google search, according to the Telegraph, apparently due to accidentally setting the Trello board to ‘public’.
