Deloitte Hit With Cyber Attack

Cyber criminals infiltrated one of the world’s “big-four” accountancy firms, Deloitte.  It is believed the attacks wormed into the system in November or December of last year and remained undetected until March of 2017.  During this time, the hackers were able to access the company’s email systems, and potentially obtained usernames, passwords, IP addresses, architectural diagrams for businesses and health information.

And it took until this October for us to find out about it!

Makes you want to keep all your vital information on floppy discs under your mattress.

One would think the opportunity there would have been insider trading.

We don't need no stinkin' insider trading;  SEC Breach Could’ve Led to Illegal Trade Gains

Can I Rely on My Online Service Provider’s Backups?

If your data is kept only with that one online provider — be it email, online photo albums, online music collections, generic “cloud” storage, or more — there’s a good chance you really have no backup at all.


The key is this: the backups online services make aren’t for your protection at all; they’re for the provider’s.
