JD Sports Calls in Fieldfisher Following Cyber Attack


U.K.-based sports retailer JD Sports has called on law firm Fieldfisher after it was hit by a cyber attack that could affect around 10 million customers. 

The attack, which was revealed by the company on Monday, has resulted in the unauthorised access to a system that contained customer data connected to online orders placed between November 2018 and October 2020, the retailer said in a statement published to the London Stock Exchange.

The compromised data includes customer names, billing and delivery addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, and the final four digits of payment cards. The company added that the affected data was “limited”.

In 2022, U.K. listed firm Ince attributed a dip in its revenue to a cyber attack.

“We want to apologise to those customers who may have been affected by this incident. We are advising them to be vigilant about potential scam e-mails, calls and texts and providing details on how to report these. We are continuing with a full review of our cyber security in partnership with external specialists following this incident.
