France has fallen victim to one of the world’s largest cyber attacks in which one in two French people’s data was stolen leaving 33 million at risk.

The cybersecurity breach, the largest ever in France, took place when two service providers Viamedis and Almerys were targetted by cyber criminals in the first week of February.

This is particularly alarming as Viamedias and Almerys are service providers to medical insurance companies meaning data of millions of people is now exposed to criminals who can misuse information to great extents.

The French data protection authority (CNIL) said that information like “the marital status, date of birth and social security number, the name of the health insurer and the cover provided by the policy” of half the population of France has been impacted.

Data protection needs to become a top priority in today’s digital age when data thefts are rife.
