Sage data breach highlights the risk of the insider threat
A suspect in a recent data breach at Sage, a U.K. provider of business software, has been arrested. On Wednesday, police in London detained a company employee.
The 32-year-old woman was held for alleged fraud against the company, London City Police said. She has since been released on bail.
It’s still unclear what information, if any, may have been leaked. However, Sage, a supplier of accounting and payroll software, began notifying customers about the breach last week.
Between 200 and 300 business clients in the U.K. may have been affected. At the time, Sage said the breach had come from unauthorized access to internal login data.
Security firm the Antisocial Engineer has been in contact with Sage and said a company insider was the prime suspect.
