It's going to take a village
These breaches are just the tip of the iceberg. We all know that. One of the biggest problems is the amount of unsecured endpoints that are out there. Things like printers that aren't secured and laptops that aren't running antivirus or -- if they are -- have not been patched. It's going to take a lot more work on everyone's behalf before the good guys get ahead of the criminals.
