Data Privacy Day 2017 arrives on January 28th, highlighting how technology is impacting our ability to maintain privacy while underscoring the importance of protecting our privacy. Yet, the news all month leading up to Data Privacy Day has been anything but encouraging.
Kaspersky Labs issued a report that highlights how little we are actually doing to protect ourselves from privacy breaches. We still use passwords that are easy to crack (40% of hacks are the result of the cybercriminals guessing the password), and we don’t store our passwords securely. To top it off, 20% of us use the same password for multiple accounts while another 10% use the same password for all accounts.
