Royal Dutch Cycling Union: Sport Governing Body
Risk to Small Business: 2.896 = Moderate
The ransomware gang that decided to strike the Royal Dutch Cycling Union struck out this week after stealing a database from the agency and publishing their ransom demand with sample data as proof. It turns out that the governing body had already transferred that information to a new, more secure system and they aren’t interested in having the old data returned. There’s been no impact on operations, and no sensitive membership data was involved.
Individual Risk: No personal data was reported as exposed in this incident.
Customers Impacted: Unknown
How it Could Affect Your Customers’ Business: Data theft is the most typical goal of ransomware gangs. Even in a low-impact incident like this, data could still be exposed that could harm your business, like account credentials.
