Attention, Malaysians! It looks like CIMB recently encountered a problem.
CIMB Group Holdings Bhd announced that several magnetic tapes containing back-up data were lost during routine operations.
Here’s a rough breakdown of what happened;
1. Some CIMB customer information was affected
According to a statement from the bank, some of the magnetic tapes that were lost in transit contained some customer information, as well as information about its subsidiaries.
However, the information that was lost does not involve data like Personal Identification Numbers (PINs), passwords, or credit card and card verification value (CVV) numbers, according to the New Straits Times.
2. None of this lost information has been compromised
Luckily though, CIMB found from their ongoing investigations that this lost information did not fall into the wrong hands.
Right now, the bank is working closely with relevant authorities and is taking all the necessary precautions to protect its customers. The bank also assured that all customer information is still with them, as they just lost back-up tapes.
3. CIMB has temporarily suspended some of their services
Due to this incident, CIMB decided to take some extra precautions by temporarily suspending some of its services via its call centre. These services include;
- Change of address
- Change of telephone number and/or e-mail address
- Change of mailing address for banking/credit cards
- Third party fund transfer without T-Pin
- Payment for customers without T-Pin
- T-Pin creation or requests
4. Customers are advised to take extra caution
Lastly, in light of this incident, CIMB has advised its customers to be extra careful and refer only to official CIMB channels like its website, call centre, and their branches.
“Although this was an isolated incident, we have reviewed and further strengthened our security and internal processes to ensure that we remove the possibility of it recurring,” CIMB Group Holdings Bhd CEO Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Aziz said.
