Statement regarding LockBit claims

Earlier this morning we became aware of tweets from LockBit, the cyber-criminal gang, claiming that they had compromised Darktrace’s internal security systems and had accessed our data. Our security teams have run a full review of our internal systems and can see no evidence of compromise. None of the LockBit social media posts link to any compromised Darktrace data. We will continue to monitor the situation extremely closely, but based on our current investigations we are confident that our systems remain secure and all customer data is fully protected.

Award-Winning US Recruitment Company Signs Million-Dollar-Deal with Darktrace

April 14, 2022

Darktrace, a global leader in cyber security AI, today announced that a US-based, award-winning recruitment firm has signed a million-dollar-deal with Darktrace to ensure its business is protected from sophisticated cyber-attacks.

The company, which employs thousands of recruiters across its offices in the US and Canada and sources talent for organizations across all industries including defense, education and financial services, has deployed Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System and Darktrace Antigena to protect its digital enterprise, including its Azure cloud deployment and extensive Microsoft suite. Darktrace’s partnership with Microsoft means that its Self-Learning technology is amplified in Microsoft environments such as Microsoft 365 and cloud applications as organizations increasingly rely on cloud infrastructure and virtual collaboration tools.

The staffing industry is often targeted by attackers seeking access to sensitive personal data such as passport information and social security numbers, and the reliance of recruitment professionals on links and documents sent by clients makes them a prime target for phishing emails. Amidst an unprecedented rise in the number of workers resigning from their jobs, the recruitment industry now holds more personally identifiable information, which can be more easily monetized than ever before.

Self-Learning AI can not only spot any kind of threat but can also take autonomous action to prevent it from escalating into a crisis, all while business operations continue as normal.

“Darktrace is delighted to be protecting this award-winning recruitment firm,” said Poppy Gustafsson OBE, CEO of Darktrace. “Data breaches have long-lasting reputation impact, particularly within industries that are highly competitive and are trusted with personal information. It remains our mission to deliver technology that stops the negative consequences of in-progress attacks before data falls into the wrong hands. By learning the business, rather than past threats, our artificial intelligence is spotting and stopping novel attacks day-in and day-out.”
