The police officer stated that precautions were made to guarantee that the aforementioned data could never be recovered by anybody.

A Mumbai police official stated on Friday that “confidential data” of textile giant Welspun Living Limited was allegedly erased after an unlawful entrance into company computers. As a result, a case was registered.

According to the official, the event happened on January 17 of this year between 8 and 8:50 p.m. and destroyed data, daily operating reports, and the company’s dashboard.

“An unidentified person gained access to the system by logging into email id of the company. The access was made from a Hyderabad based IP address. The breach was found when the firm’s assistant general manager of IT logged into the system on January 18 from its Telangana office. He then alerted the firm’s IT team in Mumbai,” he said.

“The company alerted Mumbai police on February 13. On Thursday, a assistant VP of the company approached N M Joshi Marg police station, after which a case was registered. Confidential data residing in Power BI tool software was wiped out. It included the company’s dashboard and reports of daily operations,” the official added. The police officer stated that precautions were made to guarantee that the aforementioned data could never be recovered by anybody.
