Issuing a fresh apology, digital security firm Gemalto on Saturday said an error in its report, which claimed that data breach incidences in India were the second highest globally due to compromise in the Aadhaar database, was rectified and that the company had not found any “verified and substantiated breach of Aadhaar data”. The report, which was issued on Monday, had claimed that 1 billion records were compromised in Aadhaar breach incident, including name, address and other personally identified information. Gemalto CEO Philippe Vallee expressed deep regret for “failing to conduct sufficient due diligence before publishing this information”. Through an advertisement published across newspapers, Vallee said, “Through the publication of his report, Gemalto has caused prejudices in the minds of the general public at large against Aadhaar which we deeply regret. We never intended to malign Aadhaar, India’s prestigious identity mission project, by unknowingly committing the mistake.”
