The Data Breach Blog – An Excellent Resource
Filed under: Authentication Security, Data Security, General Information, IT Security, Security Attacks
We have been including blog posts related to security breaches throughout the year and I wanted to share with you a great resource from SCMagazine called The Data Breach Blog. This is a blog dedicated to reporting on various data breaches which have occurred and providing information such as how many victims, what happened, what type of personal data, what was the response, and details about issues which allowed the data breach to happen.
One example is this recent data breach of a database containing personal information from 235,000 students, former students, parents, faculty, staff and individuals who sent their SAT scores to Western Connecticut State University. This included names, social security numbers, emails, addresses, phone numbers and even grades. Check out the rest of the blog post to see how they handled the attack….
