2012 Data Breach Re-Cap


An article written this week discusses the worst data breaches in 2012 thus far.  The top three include:


-          New York State Electric & Gas Co.

-          Global Payments, Inc.

-          California Dept. of Child Support Services


As we said in our post on the LinkedIn data breach, make sure all of your personal accounts have different passwords in order to prevent identity thieves from gaining access to all of your private information.  That is one simple way to help yourself in case you fall victim to a data breach.
