The bank account details of 400 people have been disclosed after Sure was targeted by a phishing attack.

Those involved include suppliers, employees and former employees across Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man.

The company says it is due to 'human error'.

It has contacted those affected, but wants to reassure its customers that none of their data has been compromised.

The loss of data was the result of human error and only affected one staff email account which our systems identified and subsequently shut down. The attack was contained and Sure’s systems were never compromised.

While the data that has been stolen cannot be used in isolation, we have advised those affected to be extra vigilant.

We’d like to apologise to all those who have been affected. Security is of paramount importance to Sure and our employees undergo regular cyber security training. We are constantly reviewing our training programmes and will use this example to inform future learning.

– Tim Stonebridge our Chief Security Officer at Sure
