"Attorneys suing the company will now have access to the report in preparation for a potential trial.
A judge has ruled that Capital One must release the forensic report prepared by Mandiant following a data breach, of which the company is now being sued over.
On Tuesday, Judge John Anderson from the US District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia ruled that Capital One is required to provide a copy of the report to attorneys suing the firm on behalf of customers impacted by the breach.
The US financial giant suffered a date breach in 2018, disclosed a year later. Roughly 100 million US citizens and 6 million Canadian citizens were impacted through the compromise of personally identifiable information (PII) gathered by Capital One in relation to credit card applications."
