Harry Wallop reports on what would be considered an “insider breach” over on databreaches.net:

Britain’s oldest tailor, Ede & Ravenscroft, is suing a former employee, which it accuses of stealing vital customer data.

The company, sells not just bespoke suits but is also supplies gowns to all the Oxbridge colleges and robes to the House of Lords, claims that confidential data, possibly including the personal measurements of its well-heeled clients, has been stolen.

Ede & Ravenscroft holds royal warrants from The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and the Prince of Wales, all of whom it supplies robes to.

It has filed a 17-page writ at the High Court last month, accusing Matthew Farnes of wrongly obtaining information from its database before leaving to set up a rival firm around the corner.


Mr Farnes, who has set up a tailor’s business around the corner from Savile Row in Sackville Street last year, denied all the allegations, saying they were ridiculous.
