May 31, 2019 — On May 1st, Charles River Labs announced a breach and reported that data had been copied out from approximately 1% of their clients.
While that announcement certainly generates not only curiosity, but also concern for others within the industry, nothing has been released since, which leaves us several questions: What happened? Could it happen to us? What should we do? This quiet period after a breach is normal, as we’ve seen with others. It usually isn’t until a year or more later that the full study of the incident is released.
