Tech Report: Security Breaches & What They Mean To You - Part 1
Recently The Chronicle reported WSU admitted a hard drive containing personal information on over 1 million people, some of whom never even attended WSU, went missing when an 83-pound safe was stolen from a commercial self-storage facility. Last week ZDNet revealed Millions of Verizon customer records exposed in security lapse. Friday a Newsy.com video declared 9 of 10 health care organizations may have faced a data breach, adding ransomware, malware or denial of service attacks were linked to most breaches, and may cost the industry billions. Even your friends and family may unwittingly leave the door open by “borrowing” your Netflix & Hulu accounts, as CNET shows in this video.
Despite your own best efforts to safeguard your personal information, it seems those entrusted with that data are unable or unwilling to do the same. And offers to pacify you with a year of free credit monitoring service do precisely nothing except serve to remind you that you’ve been exposed.
Anyone who has dealt with the fallout from such incidents can tell you the estimated loss to individual victims collectively exceeds that of the industry. Increasingly it’s a matter of when, not if, you will be affected by this epidemic. So having a backup plan is disaster preparedness.
Like having an AWOL or weekend getaway bag packed in case of emergency, Virginia McGuire suggests via nerdwallet: Most of us have more than one credit card anyway. If you already have multiple accounts, it’s the easiest thing in the world to designate one credit card exclusively for automated bill payments.
