Irish Teaching Council Fined €60,000 for Phishing-Induced Breach

Ireland’s Teaching Council has been fined €60,000 by the country’s Data Protection Commission (DPC) over a breach of nearly ten thousand teachers’ data, the Irish Examiner reports. An attacker gained access to two employees’ Gmail accounts by sending credential-harvesting phishing emails, then set up auto-forwarding rules to forward incoming emails to the attacker’s email address.
