Lloyds Bank has experienced a security breach, with thousands of customer's personal data being stolen, following the theft of a data box.

The incident is now being investigated by the Police from the Organised Crime Unit, as the information that was stolen contained details of their names, addresses, account numbers and sort codes. 

The customers who were directly affected by the Lloyds data theft have Premier Accounts with the bank, which comes with home insurance.

The data was taken from a data room belonging to Royal Sun Alliance (RSA) insurance, which provided home cover.

While the theft only affects customers who opened their accounts between 2006 and 2012, and who made a claim on the insurance policy, the RSA has apologized for the incident and are investigating how it occurred. 

The event highlights the lack of security controls implemented around data within banks, and in order to protect customer information in future, Lloyds must incorporate breach detection controls and File Integrity Monitoring in order to monitor activity within sensitive files and alert if and when a breach occurs.
