Tidal Launches Data Breach Investigation


Last week Norwegian news paper Dagens Næringsliv accused Jay Z's music streaming service Tidal of wildly inflating streaming numbers for Beyonce and Kanye West at the expense of other artists [click here if you missed that].

Now Tidal is launching an investigation into its data breach...

Tidal reps tell Music Business World
“We reject and deny the claims that have been made by Dagens Næringsliv. Although we do not typically comment on stories we believe to be false, we feel it is important to make sure that our artists, employees, and subscribers know that we are not taking the security and integrity of our data lightly, and we will not back down from our commitment to them."
“When we learned of a potential data breach we immediately, and aggressively, began pursuing multiple avenues available to uncover what occurred. This included reporting it to proper authorities, pursuing legal action, and proactively taking steps to further strengthen our stringent security measures that are already in place."
“Additionally, we have engaged an independent, third party cyber-security firm to conduct a review of what happened and help us further protect the security and integrity of our data. We are proud of the hard work, devotion to our artist driven mission, and tremendous accomplishments of our over one hundred employees in Norway and fifty more in the United States."
“We look forward to sharing with them, and all of our partners, the results of the review once completed.”

I’m sure JayZ & Tidal will blame “Russian hackers” just like all the other liberal lunatics.

RIP Seth Rich

@2:56 You know Research is best friend. You can literally look up articles online about this story. Some may be "alleged". But there is a saying that when multiple people tell you the same thing about a situation, you usually rings true.

Dumbass!

oh now I understand why this is a big deal. They were inflating streams for just beyonce and kanye? I thought they inflated them for everyone. and thats why I keep seeing ya put jay z face on everything because he personally did something wrong. But like i said before business people do whatever they need to for the dollar. So i guess he was looking out for his wife and artist. Im more shocked that they needed the inflated streams. Lemon-aid wasnt as popular as tidal made it seem?
