New York Attorney General Wants to Know What’s What Re: Deloitte Hack

The Wall Street Journal‘s Michael Rapoport reported this morning that New York Attorney General’s office is investigating the data breach at Deloitte “and its circumstances.” Deloitte put it in slightly different terms:

In a statement about the New York A.G.’s involvement, Deloitte said Mr. Schneiderman’s office has “reached out” to it about the breach “with some questions focused on private information of New York state residents,” and that such a move was “typically the case in response to a cyber-incident reported in the media.” The firm reiterated that “consumers were not affected by this incident.”

You really get the sense that Deloitte would like people to stop talking about this. But it might be just the beginning.
