The recent breach reported by Equifax is massive, with more information surfacing all the time. When something like this happens, we hear a lot of questions from concerned individuals, such as:
- Could this happen to our business or organization?
- Could this have been prevented?
- How do I protect myself in case my information was stolen?
- What exactly happened?
Derrick Masters, Security Engineer at Infogressive, talks us through what happened during the Equifax breach and how the hackers were able to get in and steal our information. Derrick also explains (in plain, easy to understand terms – Thanks Derrick!) what we can do as individuals to protect ourselves as well as what organizations should be doing to avoid making the same mistakes.
