Obama’s Legacy: Cybersecurity is Suddenly a Priority January 7, 2017Posted by geoff in Crime, News, Obama's Legacy.
So the administration and Democrats have finally realized the need for improved cybersecurity. Of course, while they were bumbling about in happy oblivion, those of us in the trenches have been seeing our medical, financial, and online information being compromised at increasing rates for more than 10 years.
Here’s what breaches and record exposures have looked like from 2005 – 2015:
There were 980 data breaches in 2016, with 35,233,317 records exposed.
Since 2005, we’ve had 6,789 breaches in total, and 886,544,750 records have been exposed. That means pretty much everybody in the United States has had their information exposed at some point.
But that never bothered the Obama administration before the election. Now that they lost an election, however, it’s suddenly important.
This has been the most self-centered administration I have ever seen.
