Forrester Research, Inc. (Nasdaq:  FORR) announced today that Forrester.com experienced a cybersecurity incident this week. To date, Forresters investigation has determined that the attack was limited to content made available to Forrester clients through Forrester.com. There is no evidence that confidential client data, financial information, or confidential employee data was accessed or exposed as part of the incident.

Preliminary forensic evidence suggests that the hacker was ultimately detected and shut out of the system; remediation steps were taken.
We recognize that hackers will attack attractive targets — in this case, our research IP. We also understand there is a tradeoff between making it easy for our clients to access our research and security measures, said George F. Colony, chairman and chief executive officer of Forrester. We feel that we have taken a common-sense approach to those two priorities; however, we will continuously look at that balance to respond to changing cybersecurity risk.
Forrester continues to investigate the incident and has notified the authorities to enable law enforcement to take further action as needed.

近年来“黑客”盗取邮箱骗走大笔货款的案子很多,钱被黑客骗走,生意扯皮,客户流失,表面上只是邮箱保护不力,邮件被截取和冒用,实际上要保护好邮箱,需要全面的安全防范,需要从基本的安全意识和技能抓起。
