Breach DetectionBREACH DETECTION

The directors of Bettys & Taylors of Harrogate have pledged to harden cyber security on the Bettys.co.uk website and keep customers informed, after details of 122,000 customers were lost in a data breach.

It blames an “industry-wide software weakness” but declined to specify which software was involved.

Bettys & Taylors notified customers yesterday via an email from director Paul Cogan. According to the Bettys & Taylors' spokesperson, the data breach involved all of its registered online customers – 122,000 names. “For the vast majority of customers on our data base, the data copied is limited to name, email address and encrypted password,” she said.

The severity of the breach was less than it could have been because credit card details are not stored on the server but kept by a certified third party, the company stated.
