TalkTalk once told GCHQ: Cyberattack? We'd act fast – to get sport streams back up


42 Million??

If this attack only cost them 42 million, then they haven't done a good enough job of ensuring this doesn't happen again.

It costs a lot more than 42m for a company like this to investigate the entire network, hire more InfoSec professionals, ensure the systems are clean, purchase more InfoSec equipment, create policies, audit policies, update legacy systems, hire more employees to tackle customer relations and damage control, not to mention loss of subscriptions, etc..

Total cost should be around 200-400 million, not 42.

Either we aren't being told the truth, or they're still too ignorant about information security.
