As you may now be aware, an increasing number of websites and online services have recently revealed breaches in their cyber security. In many cases, a user’s email address, username, and password are obtained from one website, and then used to access other websites and services. This is because people tend to use the same username and password for multiple online accounts.
To be clear, we have no evidence to suggest there has been any breach of O’Brien Media Limited systems.
Whilst it’s unlikely you have been impacted, we are now advising all customers to take the following precautionary steps to secure your information:
- Change your account password via Client Connect as soon as possible
- Check your bank account for any suspicious activity
- Notify your bank immediately if you suspect any unusual activity may have taken place
We continue to advise all of our customers to use a unique password for each of their online accounts. This reduces the chances of accounts being accessed if one of their passwords becomes compromised.
If you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch and we’ll be happy to help.
