The number of breaches seem to be escalating and with it email addresses, passwords, and other information that I am sure you were not expecting to be released. While some of these are announced and hit the news stories especially when the amount of data is astronomical, but what about those that are not in the headlines. What was disclosed? Should you be concerned?
If we all follow the correct security policy of ensuring that passwords are not used for every sign-on, changed every 90 days, and never reused – you could be good, but lets face it how many of us really do this? To make matters worse, how many have signed up for a newsletter, e-commerce site, or app used it once and then forgot about?
The data that malicious actors can obtain run the gamut of the simply email and password to answers to security questions, birth dates, gender, usernames, social media presence, and phone numbers and more. This provides a treasure trove to those with harmful intent to attack with phishing, or attempt to gain access to corporate networks.
Running an Email Exposure check from KnowBe4 can provide you with answers to whom on your network may have had their information exposed in a breach.
