California Pizza Kitchen Pwned….. Data For 100,000 Is In The Wild

California Pizza Kitchen has experienced a data breach which left 100,000 employee and former employees Social Security numbers exposed. CPK said it learned of the “disruption” to its systems in September, and determined it to be a breach by October 4th. A notice of the breach was not sent to the Maine Attorney Generals office until November 15th. Which is a problem of course.

Ayal Yogev, CEO and Cofounder, Anjuna Security had this to say:

Like other orgs, CPK is no doubt doing everything they can.  But it is also clear that the complexities of protecting inherently vulnerable data are overwhelming.  Business must demand a new data security paradigm:  Data must protect itself.

This isn’t a trivial breach and much more has to be done to stop this sort of thing from happening.
