It also doesn't surprise me that email is & will likely continuesto be a major target. It's such a ubiquitous application with a broad range of users (everyone?)...Like shooting phish in a barrel. (Pun intentded)

I'm not a betting person, but I'll bet there will be other such waves next year.

Just Another Day At the Office

"....They typically see around 150,000 such pilfered accounts per month. "This explosion can only be connected to the high number of data breaches that occurred in 2014. " 

 

Already an unbelievable number - I wonder what it be after the 2015 ?    If projections hold steady, 300,000 ?

Breeches: Too Many To Count

There have been so many security breeches of late that is getting difficult to keep up with them.  I have to ask myself, what is going on ?   There has to be a major flaw that hackers are exploiting and security personnel have yet to correct.   Always seems as if security is one to five steps behind the hacker.   

 

It might be time for companies to re-examine their security practices and policies - improvements must be made.
