PNC Bank Warning ALL Customers

It’s not breaking news now that PNC experienced a major cyber attacks in the last few weeks on a few of it’s major websites. Their IT team has been working hard to fight off these cyber attacks while maintaining website and mobile access for customers, however, there was still a great deal of damage done and information exposed.

PNC Bank Warning Customers

PNC’s IT team noticed a sporadic spikes of high traffic, which have indicated cyber attacks in the past. Therefore, PNC sent out a mass email to about 5 million of their customers warning them of the traffic spikes they’ve noticed and to be cautious. The attacks cause a great deal of traffic to visit their major websites, causing their websites to work at an extremely slow pace for customers.

On a more positive note, PNC also stated that they use encryption software to protect all of their customers’ information during these cyber attacks.
PNC is a great example of preventing disaster by taking high security action. Unfortunately, many businesses fail to do this and when a cyber attack occurs, customer information is exposed and a great deal of damage is done.
