They say that the more you witness something, the more normal it becomes. I opened Twitter last week to see yet another mega-hack from hell in the form of the Equifax breach; the breach exposing around 143 million US customer accounts and quite likely a further 44 million UK ones too.
The Equifax breach is one in a long line of personal data mega breaches. At last look, the Breach Level Index, maintained by Gemalto, has counted over 9 billion lost data records since 2013. Many of those lost records will be accidental, but many more will be maliciously stolen.
