Morrisons supermarket data breach

Just hours ago, it was made public that Morrisons, a super market, is being held liable for the breach of information involving their workers.

Workers of Morrisons recently made a claim against the company after another employee named Andrew Skelton, stole data from the company that includes working salary, bank details, names and addresses of nearly 100,000 employees.

Morrisons believes it should not be held accountable for the actions of Skelton and is appealing against the decision.

This security breach occurred in 2014, that was when Skelton, a senior internal auditor leaked the information of employees to the internet and newspapers.

Supposedly this was a grudge retaliation over an incident that had recently occurred. Skelton was jailed for eight years in 2015, guilty for fraud,  securing unauthorized access to computer material and disclosing personal data.

Lawyers claim the company is at fault for lacking security means and the vulnerability of 5,518 former and current employees. The Judge has ruled in favor of holding Morrisons accountable for the incident.
