Want to know if your information has been breached? Check out Have I Been Pwned:
Created by Security Developer, Troy Hunt, this FREE resource allows anyone to see if their information has been put at risk. I had my colleague, Meghan try it out with her personal email and two breaches came up:
1) The May 2016 Linkedin breach which resulted in the leak of 164 million email addresses and passwords
2) The 2013 Tumblr breach with resulted in the exposure of 65 million accounts
Data breaches are rampant so, when it comes to protecting yourself (or your organization) user education is a must. Arrange for some basic security awareness training and implement a safe computing policy.
