Employee charged in 407 ETR data breach involving 60,000 customers
An employee from a company that operates a well-traveled toll road in southern Ontario has been charged in a major breach of customer data.
York Regional Police allege the 407 Express Toll Route employee used a company computer to access and compile a list of names, addresses and phone numbers of 60,000 customers in specific areas.
They say the suspect, 37-year-old Varun (Bobby) Saini of Toronto, is charged with mischief to data and unauthorized use of a computer.
Police say he has been released and is due in court on Nov. 5.
The investigation began in May 2018 after the toll route operator reported a breach, describing it as an ``inside theft of data.''
It said at the time that no external breach was suspected and no credit card or banking information was taken.
