The company reported that the hackers responsible for the incident got access to some current and former employee data, as well as limited and sensitive information of the company regarding some business partners.
Belden came to know about the attack when employees of the company detected unusual activity on some servers. When consulted about the incident, experts said that it was the result of a cyber-attack. The attackers apparently accessed a limited number of Belden’s file servers, but the firm said the breach did not have any impact on production in manufacturing plants, quality control or shipping.
