S$16,000 Fine after Employee Data Compromised in Ransomware Attack
Food & Beverage operator, Genki Sushi, has been fined S$16,000 for failing to protect the personal data of some 360 current and former employees. The sushi chain suffered a ransomware attack in September 2018, when a server hosting a payroll software was compromised. The payroll database contained information such as employees’ name, personal identification number, bank account numbers and salary details. While there was no indication the database was exfiltrated, Genki Sushi was still penalised for failing to protect the sensitive database or conduct penetration tests to assess the overall security of its IT systems.
