Travelex ransomware attack

On the news that Travelex is still offline after a ransomware attack on New Year’s Eve, Toni Vitale, partner and head of data protection at JMW Solicitors, says: 

“The fact that, for several days, there was no coherent communication from Travelex as to the exact nature of the attack left customers, media, stakeholders and other interested parties in the dark.  It also appears that Travelex did not inform the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) about the breach. Many may think a ransomware attack is not a data breach because the data is still on the system but if the personal data entrusted to your care is encrypted and you cannot access it or decrypt it, you could be deemed to have lost control of the data and therefore it could constitute a breach.

* condor-full-brass-cylinder.jpg
M&C have announced that their Condor cylinder has achieved Sold Secure Diamond certification.

All of their cylinders were already certified to the SKG 3 star standard, but differences between the Dutch and British standards meant that they had to add an anti-snap element to existing cylinders for the UK market.

Condor, like all of M&C's cylinders, uses their Modulock system, which allows locksmiths to resize, make thumbturns and even keyed alike sets on the door without re-pinning.
