Amazon sacks employee over data breach

  • Amazon has contacted a portion of its customers to inform them an employee has been discharged from their role after leaking their personal information to an unidentified third-party.
  • The incident highlights the continued threat of insider security risks.
  • No matter how many cyber security precautions an organisation takes, it’s difficult to guard against either human error or malicious intent, as has been the case with the leakage of Amazon customers’ email addresses.
