Who should worry about data breaches?
You as an individual are at risk. Your bank account is at risk. Your credit is at risk. You’re at risk in ways you never thought about.
Merchants are at risk, maybe to the tune of tens of billions of dollars.
Banks are at risk. In fact, the whole financial system could be at risk.
And we hate to think about it, but the entire country is at risk.
And then there’s the security implications of breaches of critical U.S. infrastructure imply. And the global geopolitical implications of cyberwar.
We know that’s all out there, but today I’m going to put a single data breach under a microscope.
