A data breach at Aurora Cannabis has exposed the personal information of an unknown number of the Canadian company’s current and former employees, Marijuana Business Daily has learned.

An email sent to a victim of the data breach cites a Dec. 25 “cybersecurity incident during which unauthorized parties accessed data in (Microsoft cloud software) SharePoint and OneDrive.” The email was shared with MJBizDaily.

The victim, a former Aurora employee who was laid off in February 2020 alongside hundreds of others, wasn’t notified of the breach until late in the evening of Dec. 31.

The source said that working for Alberta-based Aurora was “an experience that I think a lot of people want to forget.”

“And then getting a reminder on the last day of 2020, just hours to go before 2020 ended, was just a bit of a kick to the face,” he said.

The former employee said he spoke with three current Aurora workers and five other former staffers whose information was exposed.
