McDonald’s data breach investigated.

The Polish data protection Regulator has announced that it has commenced an investigation into a data breach by McDonald’s, concerning unauthorised access to information about employees. In addition, it also appears that the data breach was not reported within 72 hours of discovery.


Although details are currently sparse, it appears that the Regulator is focusing on McDonald’s technical and organisational measures and whether the file containing personal data was placed in a publicly available directory.
