Security lapse at contract startup Evisort exposed sensitive data

Security lapse at contract startup Evisort exposed sensitive data (Breaches and Incidents)

Evisort, a document and contract management company, left one of its document databases unsecured, exposing customer data. When reached, Evisort’s chief executive Jerry Ting said the database was “for testing and development purposes only” and an audit was under way. While some of the documents were marked “dummy” and “test” files, many documents seen by TechCrunch contained customer data. The database also contained non-disclosure agreements between Evisort and Samsung. Other files appeared to be contracts and agreements submitted by Evisort customers. “However, it appears that there may be a small number legitimate documents in this environment.” “As part of our investigation, we will be reviewing the entire data set in the environment, along with any available logging data, to determine what information may have been affected and we will be communicating directly with any of our customers who could be affected,” he added.
