Toyota Kirloskar Motor reported a data breach on Sunday that might have exposed some clients’ personal information. However, the company said they have informed the CERT-In (Indian Computer Emergency Response Team) about the data breach at Toyota Kirloskar Motor.
The extent of the intrusion in its system is still being evaluated, according to the leading automotive player. The development has come to light after the company was alerted by one of its service providers of a potential data breach that might have compromised some of its customers’ personal data, the company stated in a release.
“Considering this incident, Toyota Kirloskar Motor will work with its service provider to further improve the extensive existing guidelines being followed and is fully committed to avoid any kind of inconvenience to our esteemed customers,” the company stated.
This data breach incident comes against the backdrop of a data leak in October when Toyota Motor Corp said around 296,000 pieces of information related to customers from its T-Connect service might have been compromised.
