Google Groups Exposing Sensitive Information

789 0

Thousands of G-Suit Users using Google Groups have been exposing sensitive  information through misconfigured Google Group Instances. Google has issued an official warning to users, after security researchers at Kenna Security found the leaks. Alex Calic, Chief Strategy and Revenue Officer at The Media Trust commented below.

Alex Calic, Chief Strategy and Revenue Officer at The Media Trust:

 “Apart from the fact that the misconfiguration issue could have been easily avoided, another alarming issue with the Google Groups situation is that companies appear to be sharing highly sensitive information. This is a symptom of the absence of robust policies–and processes to enforce them–to reduce companies’ exposure to digital risks. The bottom line is if you don’t want sensitive information to see the light of day, you need to develop and enforce stringent rules around how they are shared. As laws like the GDPR tighten around how personal information is collected and shared, exercising vigilance is more important than ever.”
