Web Portal Exposes Insurance Customers

Major insurance provider Globe Life is reeling from a data breach after a security flaw in one of their web portals exposed customer information. The exact nature and scope of the breach are still under investigation. The company became aware of the problem after a state regulator raised concerns about access permissions and user identity management on the portal.

Globe Life reacted quickly by shutting down external access to the affected portal and bringing in cybersecurity experts to investigate further. The incident served as a stark reminder for businesses to enforce robust access controls and regular security testing.
