Security has been becoming a prime concern for users, companies, and even companies offering security services. A similar thing has happened when ELCOM Innovations got hacked which led to the loss of confidential information. The Noida-based company used to provide security services to the defense forces of the country.
More about the data hack
The company claimed the hack cost them an estimated Rs 50 crores. After the company’s data was compromised it filed an FIR in the Sector 39 police station. And an investigation on the same has also been launched. A senior executive of the company said that the hacking of his and the mails of other members of the company led to huge financial losses and also hurt their reputation a lot.
A big problem with this hack was the importance of the leaked data.
