TARGET: Coca-Cola Data Breach

Things are starting to fizz up! Back in September 2017, a disgruntled former employee of the soda pop conglomerate, Coca-Cola, managed to walk out the door of their global headquarters with an external hard drive containing over 8,000 confidential employee records. Although they would not disclose the specifics of the information stolen, the company did reveal that employee personal information had been compromised.

The crime went unnoticed until law enforcement officials brought it to the company’s attention. It appears that Coca-Cola had no idea that the external drive and personal data were missing until the FBI found the hard drive in the possession of the former employee. Coca-Cola has since notified the affected employees.

Proficio Threat Intelligence Recommendations:

  • Implement additional access controls around sensitive data.
  • Invest in solutions such as a UBA (user behavior analytics) platform to detect insider threat activity.
