Nobody cases LinkedIn hacked
For me, people did not seem to care that LinkedIn was hacked in 2012. It did not bother anybody that their resumes and connections was disposed to others. The only problem is the username password, since we all use those in other sites too. :--)))

hashed password
 

Hass in one way so there is no encryption/decryption on the hash. For me this is the most secure way to deal with the passwords but if your password is simple has can not protect you.

Persistant
This promotes the best practice of users changing their password on a regular basis. I would think that unaware users from 2012 would still be using their original password if there was not a forced change.

A Timing Puzzlement
"LinkedIn is now invalidating passwords for all accounts not changed before the 2012 breach..."

Wouldn't that be not changed after the 2012 breach?

Incorporating a Prevention Mindset into Threat Detection and Response
Threat detection and response systems, by definition, are reactive because they have to wait for damage to be done before finding the attack. With a prevention-mindset, security teams can proactively anticipate the attacker's next move, rather than reacting to specific threats or trying to detect the latest techniques in real-time. The report covers areas enterprises should focus on: What positive response looks like. Improving security hygiene. Combining preventive actions with red team efforts.
