HSBC bank confirms US data breach

HSBC have announced that they have suffered a data breach in the US. Read the bbc news article here.

According to this story, the hackers used a technique called credential stuffing – where they have obtained thousands of user names and passwords ( potentially along with other personal data) that originates from login data from other breached websites.

This is technique is usually very effective due to people re-using the same password across several different websites.

Customers can mitigate this risk by enabling a secure 2FA on their accounts ( such as U2F with Yubico) and using a password manager ( such as Keeper ) to create a unique password for every website they use.

U2F doesn’t store any secrets on the website side – making it impossible to capture and steal.

Keeper have recently launched a “Breachwatch” function that scours the sources for these usernames and passwords and immediately alerts you that your details are available and helps you change the password. Find out more here.

Curious if your details are on the web due to a breach? Find out at https://haveibeenpwned.com/

The data on here is only what’s been discovered by researchers for free. This latest news proves no one is invincible and it’s worth bearing in mind only the bigger breaches make the news!

Northamber offer Yubico and Keeper, so give us a call on 020 8296 7066 and talk to our experts about securing your customers’ business.
