Acuity Brands Data Purloined

December 13, 2022


Lighting and building management company, Acuity Brands, said it ended up hit by two data breaches over the past two years, and it appears it is just now getting around to informing the public and workers.
Atlanta, Georgia-based Acuity Brands said it identified a data security incident one year ago and it immediately took steps to secure its systems, and hired a third-party cybersecurity firm to conduct a thorough investigation.
Acuity discovered evidence of an unauthorized access that occurred on October 6 and October 7, 2020, which included an attempt to copy certain files out of its network.
