Wells Fargo fires employee after data breach exposes customer information, ET CISO

Wells Fargo fires employee after data breach exposes customer information, ET CISO

Wells Fargo has disclosed a data breach caused by the actions of one of its employees, resulting in the exposure of personal and mortgage account information for two of its customers.

The incident, confirmed by the California-based banking giant, was not a cyber-attack but rather a violation of company policies. The employee involved sent sensitive information to a personal account, leading to their termination.

“Wells Fargo has taken appropriate actions in accordance with our policies and procedures,” a Wells Fargo spokesperson told CyberNews. “The individual involved is no longer with the company.”

The two affected customers have been notified of the breach through a letter emphasizing that their well-being is Wells Fargo’s top priority. The bank expressed regret over any inconvenience caused by the incident and is actively monitoring the affected accounts for any unusual activities.

To further protect these customers, Wells Fargo is offering a complimentary two-year identity theft protection service through Experian, aimed at preventing any potential misuse of their information.

Information Security - InfoSec - Cyber Security - Firewall Providers Company in India













What is Firewall? A Firewall is a network security device that monitors and filters incoming and outgoing network traffic based on an organization's previously established security policies. At its most basic, a firewall is essentially the barrier that sits between a private internal network and the public Internet.


Secure your network at the gateway against threats such as intrusions, Viruses, Spyware, Worms, Trojans, Adware, Keyloggers, Malicious Mobile Code (MMC), and other dangerous applications for total protection in a convenient, affordable subscription-based service. Modern threats like web-based malware attacks, targeted attacks, application-layer attacks, and more have had a significantly negative effect on the threat landscape. In fact, more than 80% of all new malware and intrusion attempts are exploiting weaknesses in applications, as opposed to weaknesses in networking components and services. Stateful firewalls with simple packet filtering capabilities were efficient blocking unwanted applications as most applications met the port-protocol expectations. Administrators could promptly prevent an unsafe application from being accessed by users by blocking the associated ports and protocols.
