When your vendor gets breached, you might be dragged into the mess by media even if your data was not compromised. Consider the recent case of 7.ai data breach.
On April 4, 2018, online chat application vendor 7.ai publicly reported that they had “an incident potentially affecting the online customer payment information of a small number of our client companies…” Shortly afterwards, well-known corporations Delta, Sears, Kmart and Best Buy released statements acknowledging that their customer data was impacted by this breach.
