On Sunday, April 23, retail grocery chain Naivas gave their customers the reassurance that their data had not been compromised as a result of an attack by foreign hackers.
The business confirmed that credit and debit card information was not among the data acquired by hackers posing as Threat Actor in a statement seen by Chief Communications Officer Willy Kimani.
“Naivas would like to confirm that we do not hold any credit card/debit card information on our systems, and that such payment information is handled securely and protected through Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption,” the statement read in part.
The grocery store chain admitted that they acted promptly to tighten their data security procedures in order to stop a second attack.
“Naivas has contained this attack, and our systems are secure, and our operations are normal.
“We engaged leading cybersecurity experts CrowdStrike to ensure system integrity. This process is complete and our systems are secure,” Kimani wrote.
