When you search for data breach news, the flurry of topics vary from Yahoo paying consumers close to $358 as part of its breach settlement to understanding the Marriott data breach and its impact to companies spending upwards of $1.41 million to cover the cost of a security incident. That’s a lot of breach news! Not to mention the daily cycle of security incidents, phishing emails, cell phone takeovers, and dangerous compromises at every turn geared to steal our personal information.
At this point, we’re all trying to get more proactive. Google is a good example. Announced in October 2019, Google is trying to help consumers navigate through the stress of data breaches by rolling out a Password Checkup tool that will monitor passwords and alert you if there’s a security issue or possibility that your password may have been compromised in a third-party data breach or security incident.
