Gateley suffers data breach following ‘cyber security incident’

Ben Edwards reports:

UK listed law firm Gateley said that it has suffered a cyberattack, according to a filing to the London Stock Exchange on Wednesday.

The firm’s incident response is described in somewhat interesting terms:

“The impacted data was traced quickly and deleted from the location to which it had been downloaded and there is no evidence currently to suggest that this data has been further disseminated,” Gateley said in the stock exchange filing.

It added that the data did include some client data and that those clients will be notified once the firm’s investigations have progressed further.
