Technology is great. I enjoy seeing how current technologies progress, or see the next generation of innovation.
That's fine and all... but it seems like successfully defending against security breaches – and data theft – just isn't something consumers can really believe at this point. Last year was a super bumpy ride, as noted by the following post, published by mobile security company Lookout noted:
”Cyber criminals accelerated in 2017. We tracked 132 breaches in the last year that impacted massive and well known companies like Google, Uber, Instagram, Equifax, and Boeing. Altogether, these breaches amounted to over 5.2 billion compromised accounts in 2017.” – link – “2017: Attackers breached over 5B accounts from companies like Equifax, Boeing, and Anthem”
The infographic they've created:
Similar to what other infosec professionals have predicted, it looks like 2018 will be harrowing year for users:
”Our biggest takeaway? We saw 66% of breaches for all of 2017 occur in the second half of the year. That's a significant increase, indicating that breaches will still be a significant threat in 2018.”
Even worse, the way lawmakers handle infosec and cybersecurity is terribly abhorrent.
