Late on October 2, 2019, Sberbank became aware of a possible leak of credit card data affecting at least 200 Sberbank clients.
An internal investigation is underway. Its results will be unveiled in a separate statement. A criminal wrongdoing of an employee is the primary lead, as no breach could have occurred from the outside – the database is isolated and has no outer network access.
Refreshingly, there was no mention of the classic data-breach disclosure boiler-plate terminology that Sberbank takes the security of your personal data very seriously.
