Why the hell are data breaches so common now? Did people just stop caring?

    Oh yes, experian, that company that also suffered a data breach so massive it leaked half of everyone's SSNs. I can definitely trust them to monitor that shit.

      >work in tech finance
      >need access to an old experian API test account
      >call experian support
      >act like they're 3 seconds away from calling the FBI at any moment for asking questions
      We were one of their largest customers and still had a hard time.

      >similar thing with equifax
      >call their support
      >sure bro you want access to this random account? whatever you need
      Can't say I'm surprised. It's ironic though because the Equifax API was so much easier to work with. Experian's was a parsing nightmare.

        Reminds me of that pic showing terms like what you said being replaced with "social engineering" and other such jargon. I think it was a comic or something similar.

      There is also the whole cost/benefit thing. Training every worker and stepping up security costs far more than making a "sorry but something happened" statement and paying a few millions fee.

        Yeah this is the reason. If you invest in good security and your competitors don't, you're wasting money b/c everyone gets the same Compliance sticker. Zero incentive to secure data beyond the absolute minimum required by regulation. Then you take the money you saved by not enabling MFA and give it to regulators to make sure you never have to enable MFA.

        The breeches often cost 10's of millions of dollars each. So companies do put out training, but it only teaches about the obvious attempts. They even send fake emails every once in a while that you have to report or you get put on the naughty list.
        It is actually surprising it doesn't happen more. You would just need to make the email look legit. Like if you made the email look like a one drive email, somebody will forget to look at the email address that sent it and click on it.

    Because moronic people work in companies that store and process your data, and criminals take advantage of said morons.

    Cyber security is an impossibility while room temp IQ morons/pajeets/women are in the work force. Just assume everything about you is publicly known. Minimize your footprint as much as possible and freeze your credit.

    But if you aren't a criminal, why are you so scared of companies leaking your personal information?
    Nothing to hide nothing to fear.

    With all the breaches happening in the last few years I assume the government is involved, and they want identity theft to become a problem to push more telemetry/spying through bills to monitor everyone. Crazy how these things ONLY happen and get mass attention in the middle of an election year. The government should issue people new SSNs if they are in a breach instead of permitting fricktarded companies like Experian to profit indirectly from cybercrime.

      Also notice that none of the top 10% or 1% are ever victims of identity theft. In this town we had a data breach at a medical facility and 90% of the county was part of the dump, I'm willing to bet that nobody who has political/financial influence was affected by it, only regular people.

    They don't mind getting their data stolen as everyone spies one them anyway and they probably have nothing to hide
