On 8 May 2015, the database of Bettys & Taylors’ (Bettys), a company which provides specialty cakes, chocolate, sweets, tea and coffee through their online shop and Cafe Tea Rooms, was breached and more than 122,000 names, email addresses and encrypted passwords were copied. The credit card details of Bettys’ customers are kept by a certified third party and are therefore not at risk.

Bettys have shared information about the breach with the Information Commissioner and have setup a dedicated website which provides further information about the breach, including an official statement from Bettys, a frequently asked questions section and clear contact details.
