TalkTalk Gets Record Fine as ICO Says Hackers Got in ‘With Ease’

“TalkTalk Telecom Group Plc was fined 400,000 pounds ($510,000) by Britain’s data-protection regulator over a cyberattack that generated global headlines a year ago.
The telecommunications company’s ‘failure to implement the most basic cyber security measures allowed hackers to penetrate TalkTalk’s systems with ease,’ U.K. Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham said in a statement. Police have arrested at least six people in relation to the attack.”
