Let’s hope the new year brings a fresh start for cybersecurity. In 2019 alone, hackers exposed billions of private records, from credit card numbers and passwords to SSNs and medical histories.
As we head into a new decade, let’s not forget the major data breaches of 2019 — and what we can learn from them.
Hackers breached over 4 billion records in 2019.*
From government branches and financial institutions to social media and entertainment, it seems no industry was safe from cyberattacks in 2019.
