Newcom Business Media Inc.

On May 28, 2018 the Organization became aware of an unauthorized access to the email account of the Chief Financial Officer (CFO). It does not appear that any files of the Company were accessed and the unauthorized access is limited to strictly email communications. The email account contained email communication from approximately April 23, 2017 to early June 2018. The cause of the unlawful access appears to have originated through a phishing scheme. The incident was discovered by the CEO when an unauthorized email was sent to the accounting department requesting immediate transfer of a sum of money. That transaction was caught by the CEO and the accounting department and immediately halted. The unauthorized access appears to have commenced the first week of April 2018.
