Sberbank announcing actions to prevent possible data breach

Oct 03, 2019

October 2, 2019, Moscow – Sberbank is announcing a possible personal data leak.

Late on October 2, 2019 Sberbank became aware of a possible leak of credit card data affecting at least 200 Sberbank clients.

An internal investigation is underway. Its results will be unveiled in a separate statement. A criminal wrongdoing of an employee is the primary lead, as no breach could have occurred from the outside –  the database is isolated and has no outer network access.

The stolen information won’t affect the safety of clients’ funds.
