Online Invasion of Privacy
We have heard more comments this month on the invasion of privacy with Hollywood celebs.
It has been some time since this was first reported. This hacking event together with an online fundraising platform hacked, and information hacked from a major US home improvement store and major US bank which all occurred in the last six months, reinforces the need for action. The greatest learning from this is to not blindly assume large and well respected organisations are immune from hacking.
Let's learn from others. Have you questioned your IT team or organisations providing online IT solutions? Some questions you should consider raising are:
- are security systems up to date?
- how often are they tested?
- When was the last time security was penetrated and what changed because of it?
