News > Austral Articles > VTech Data Breach Shows How Vulnerable Customers Are
As a business, you have a duty of care to your clients. Especially when those clients give you very sensitive personal information like the names of their children and where they live.
VTech, an electronic education toy company based in Hong Kong, had a massive data breach on November 14 where millions of records were stolen. Credit card and account information was not accessed however the names of children, their gender, birthdates, parents names and their home addresses were all accessed. This amounted to 200,000 cjildren worldwide - 18,000 of these children are Australian. It’s unthinkable what could happen if this information got into the wrong hands.
