After the Hannaford Bros. data loss incident, Ecora software decided to use the opportunity to spam security / IT professionals touting their ability. On top of this lame move for business through fear mongering, the title of the webinar they advertise is "Preventing Data Theft Through Compliance" even though Hannaford was PCI compliant and used a company and product that helps achieve compliance. To top it off, Ecora can't figure out how to spam correctly, leaving variables like 'FNAME' in the mails.

If you receive ambulance chasing in the wake of a high profile security event, please send it to us.
