Amon Cohen reports:

International SOS, which claims to be “the world’s largest medical and security services company,” suffered a cyber-attack on its traveler-tracking system. A source told BTN the incident took place Aug. 28.

“We detected an unauthorized access in the U.S. to one of our systems, which hosts traveler information related to one of our information technology products,” according to a company statement provided to BTN. “As soon as we were made aware of the incident, we immediately took steps to investigate and mitigate against further incidents, as well as notified the appropriate law enforcement authorities. We have proactively communicated to a limited group of clients whose travelers’ data may have potentially been accessed. This incident remains under investigation and we are committed to providing further updates to our clients.”
