Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) has issued a statement regarding a recent incident that may have resulted in the exposure of some customers' personal information.
The extent of this intrusion is currently under investigation.
TKM, headquartered in Bengaluru, stated that one of its service providers reported the incident, which might have led to the exposure of customer data on the internet.
The company is working diligently to ascertain the full scope of the breach.
The Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) has been alerted to the situation to ensure a coordinated response.
In light of this incident, TKM is collaborating closely with its service provider to reinforce existing security protocols and guidelines. The company is firmly committed to preventing any inconvenience to its valued customers and apologizes for any concerns this situation may have caused.

The breach involved the leakage of email addresses and customer management numbers of subscribers to T-Connect.
This data breach incident underscores the ongoing challenges of cybersecurity, affecting both private enterprises and government-run entities.
