Recruiter cautioned by Manchester police over unauthorised data access. Stark Brooks comments.
The directors of Stark Brooks became aware in February 2013, having earlier had unproven suspicions, that there had been unauthorised access by an external party to the company’s computer network and server.
The matter was reported to Greater Manchester Police and we now have been informed that an individual was arrested on Thursday, June 27th in connection with the matter and subsequently received a police caution after admitting unauthorised access to computer material, in breach of the Computer Misuse Act 1990 and its amendments under the Police and Justice Act 2006.
As far as our company is concerned, it is business as usual as we continue to serve our clients to our usual excellent standard.
We have conducted a full review of our network security and are completely satisfied the security vulnerability has been eliminated.
We are now taking advice in relation to potential civil action against the perpetrator.
