Dublin-based Accenture disclosed the data breach on Friday in its annual report for its fiscal year ending Aug. 31, which it filed as a form 10-K to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, as Bleeping Computer first reported. “In the past, we have experienced, and in the future, we may again experience, data security incidents resulting from unauthorized access to our and our service providers’ systems and unauthorized acquisition of our data and our clients’ data including: inadvertent disclosure, misconfiguration of systems, phishing, ransomware or malware attacks,” Accenture says in the filing. “For example, as previously reported, during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021, we identified irregular activity in one of our environments, which included the extraction of proprietary information by a third party, some of which was made available to the public by the third party.”
