Sadly, it’s not hyperbole to say that literally every week we hear of a new data breach. In September, we learned that Equifax, one of the United States’ three major credit reporting agencies, fell prey to a breach that impacted 143 million American consumers, exposing Social Security numbers, home addresses and other sensitive personal information. We also recently learned more information about Yahoo!’s historic data breach that occurred in August 2013. While we originally thought “only” one billion accounts had been compromised, we’ve come to find out that every customer account that existed at the time (three billion in total) was affected. And these are only the big ones.
