Capita cyber-attack: 90 organisations report data breaches

The Guardian

About 90 organisations have reported breaches of personal information held by Capita after the outsourcing group suffered a cyber-attack, Britain’s data watchdog has said.

The company, which runs crucial services for local councils, the military and the NHS, experienced the hack, which caused a significant IT outage, in March.

Capita’s systems are used to administer pension funds for several large firms, including Royal Mail and Axa, covering millions of policyholders.

The attack prompted the Pensions Regulator (TPR) to write to more than 300 pension funds to ask them to check whether data had been stolen by hackers.
