Following Lockbit Ransomware Hacking, BSI Fires Director of IT and Risk Management

Ruetir reports:

PT Bank Syariah Indonesia Tbk or BSI at the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders (AGMS) in Jakarta, Monday (22/5/2023) decided to appoint a new Director of Information Technology (IT) and Director of Risk Management, namely Saladin D. Effendi and Grandhis Helmi H. .

Previously, the Director of Information Technology (IT) was held by Achmad Syafii and the Director of Risk Management was held by Tiwul Widyastuti, both of whom were honorably dismissed at the AGMS. Both were removed after BSI was found to be a victim of the Lockbit ransomware attack last week.

    What are the odds that the former IT/Risk guys signed an NDA?

    Odds are much more likely they broadcast the risks to the likelihood of a ransomware attack succeeding – and the C-Level blew it off.

    Happens EVERY DAY. Too many “leaders” without the guts or common sense to listen to the IT/Risk people.
    I told my C-Level that we were at a very high level of exposure… d’ya think they listened???
    Two months later our entire Wintel fleet (305 servers) were locked up – took 7 weeks to get to RTO.

    An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

      Agreed. It’s the “Throw someone under the bus — anyone but the C-Level” part of incident response.
