Kevin Williams shared, “The cloud has been victim to several high-profile breaches in recent weeks. The latest involves Pharmaceutical giant Pfizer, which suffered a significant breach of unsecured cloud data.”
“The exposed data, including email addresses, home addresses, full names, and other HIPAA related information, was found on a misconfigured Google Cloud storage bucket. It is believed that highly confidential medical information came from automated customer support software stored in the Google database. It is unclear how long this data had been stored or who had access to this information.”
