The private banking statements of 647 high-net-worth clients of Standard Chartered Bank have been found on the laptop of a hacker busted by Singapore Police.
Who does this not surprise me.
When I was doing a Due Diligence of Acquiring a Credit Card portfolio based in Leeds, I found that the systems documentation stated that the Statements had been outsourced and were produced in Bristol by CSC. A little research via Google showed that this
datacentre had been closed down, and the Statements were being produced by CSC in Melbourne Australia. Further research by me showed that the PIN Mailers were also being sent (unencrypted) to the other side of the world to be printed, and then mailed back
to the UK via the public postal service.
So try hacking the print servers - its easy.
