1: Data breaches happen all the time.
What do Apple, Uber, and EasyJet have in common? Answer: They are among the hundreds of major companies which have suffered data breaches in the past few years. The list is extensive, and that’s before we include smaller companies you may not have heard of. Every time one of these breaches occurs, innocent people are put in danger of identity theft and other concerns. Statistically, you are more likely than not to be caught in a data breach at some point. In 2018 alone, more than 470 million people’s confidential information was exposed in data breaches – and those are just the ones we know about.
