Massive Cloud Leak Exposes Alteryx, Experian, US Census Bureau Data

A substantial data leak that was the result of a misconfigured Amazon Web Services S3 storage bucket exposed the sensitive data of 123 million American households in December. This leaked data contained information from analytics firm Alteryx and its partners Experian and the US Census Bureau and included details on financial histories, contact information, and mortgage ownership. To limit risk, banks should probe the security culture and controls of their third-party vendors and ensure they meet expectations.
