This breach was believed to have been caused by a phishing e-mail, a common practice by cyber-criminals to infiltrate a system and retrieve information. Phishing is just one form of cyber-crime being used right now, there is a countless number of other ways a hacker can infiltrate the infrastructure of companies, especially if the security system being used is old, outdated, free and basic and so on. Cyber-crime is so advanced these days that you need a system with regular updates to combat new threats that is managed 24/7 and has multiple defence protocols and keeps you secure from anything you might encounter.
