Nisa has removed two-non executive directors following the leak of data last September.
Following the news from last September, where it was revealed that the convenience store suffered a major leak of its members’ data when a spreadsheet containing shareholders’ addresses, phone numbers and online passwords was leaked, Harris Aslam, 18, and Raza Rehman, 24, have been removed from the board following the incident.
Nisa chairman Christopher Baker told The Sunday Times it had launched a “robust” investigation into the alleged data breach last year, and after an investigation conducted by EY and Kroll, it was found that members’ contact details were circulated, while a file containing information was leaked to The Sunday Times.
A solicitor for the two men denied that they had acted improperly, while two other member directors involved in the initial data leak have been reprimanded and have subsequently apologised, reported ihotdesk.
Nisa chairman Christopher Baker, said: “It is important to Nisa that members of the board share and respect Nisa’s values and behaviours.”
A source within UK Government told IT Security Guru that with a non-executive director, the responsibility sits in a number of places. They said: “If we can reach significant parts of business, whether through professional trade bodies to spread awareness through the board, our role is about getting the message to the masses.”
