INCIDENT

Australian mining company, Northern Minerals, fell victim to a cybersecurity breach back in March that led to data stolen appearing on a publishing site on the dark web, officials said Tuesday.
Northern Minerals mines and develops heavy rare earth elements like dysprosium and terbium. These materials end up used in electronics, batteries, and aircraft.
The miner revealed the threat actors stole data from its systems in late March and then published it on the dark web.
