Canadian MSP discloses data breach, failed ransomware attack

Managed service provider Pivot Technology Solutions has disclosed that it was the victim of a ransomware attack that resulted with sensitive information being accessed by the hackers.

The incident occurred last month and hit impacted data held by the parent company and its subsidiaries and/or former and current affiliates.

Threat actors were not able to complete the attack and encrypt files on the company systems but they spent enough time on the network to access sensitive information and also steal some of it.

Pivot’s quick response to the June 12 incident made it possible to continue operations, said Kevin Shank, President and CEO of the company, earlier this month.

An investigation of the incident conducted by a cyber forensic firm revealed on July 1 that the intruders had access to and exfiltrated “limited personal information of US employees and consultants.”
