NCSC and ACSC sign up to popular data breach alert service

The UK's National Cyber Security Centre and the Australian Cyber Security Centre have subscribed to a breach notification service offered by well-known security researcher Toy Hunt, using which they will get real-time notifications if credentials of any of their staff are compromised.

According to Troy Hunt who is offering the service for free, the breach notification service will help the NCSC and the ACSC respond quickly to credential breaches and limit the scale of data breaches.

Troy Hunt, a well-known security researcher, and owner of the website Have I been pwned? recently announced that thanks to a new arrangement between him, the UK's National Cyber Security Centre and the Australian Cyber Security Centre, both cyber security watchdogs will be able to centrally monitor all domains owned by their respective governments so as to respond to threats and breaches in real-time.
