May 16 Canadian Privacy Commissioner Daniel
Therrien said his agency is still gathering data about a hack at
Bell Canada parent BCE Inc, which the country's largest
telecommunications carrier said exposed about 1.9 million
customer email addresses.
"We are waiting for a fuller report sometime today,"
Therrien told Reuters in a telephone interview on Tuesday, when
asked if Bell Canada had followed proper procedures in
responding to the cyber attack.
BCE shares were little changed in early morning trade,
rising 1 cent to C#61.19, after it disclosed the breach, which
it said it had reported to the Privacy Commission.
The incident, which was disclosed late on Monday, was not
connected to the global WannaCry "ransomware" attacks and there
were no indications that any financial, password or other
sensitive personal information was accessed, BCE said.
