Whilst I appreciate it’s our responsibility to protect our data there are some seemingly easy measures that could be put in place to stop the use of these extremely common words.The methods used were considered poor practise by some and terrible by others.Companies need to step up and take control of how they store and manage our data.Similarly, personal details could be used in phishing campaigns that use such information as bait to trick people into giving up sensitive data."With this breach of 400 million accounts we should expect a domino effect of smaller data breaches with password reuse and spear-phishing," says Ilia Kolochenko, CEO of security firm High-Tech Bridge."General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) enforcement will probably help to minimize this type of incident in the future, however it will take some time.
Users should keep in mind that everything they post or share online may become public one day.
