Talk Talk boss Dido Harding has revealed she has recruited BAE Systems to provide cyber security services to the telecoms giant following the recent data breach.
Earlier this month, TalkTalk experienced a “significant and sustained cyber-attack”, during which personal and banking details of up to four million customers is thought to have been accessed.
