DATA BREACH-Security is no surety




How much does your privacy mean to you?
How important is your data to you? 
And how important are You to You!?

Hello Guys,
If you have also recently heard about the data breaches that occurred in PayPal and Uber and you wanted to know what Data Breach means, then  you are at the right place .

A data breach is an occurrence wherein data is stolen or taken from a framework without the learning or approval of the framework's proprietor. A little organization or an extensive association may endure a data breach. Stolen data may include delicate, restrictive, or classified data, for example, Mastercard numbers, client data, exchange insider facts or matters of national security. Nothing is safe today in the virtual world.
Harm made by such episodes regularly introduces itself as misfortune to the objective organization's notoriety because of an apparent 'selling out of trust'. The harm may likewise include money related misfortunes for the organization and additionally that of their clients' should budgetary records be a piece of the data stolen.
Other as often as possible watched break techniques incorporate the accompanying: 

  • Insider release: A trusted individual or individual of specialist with get to benefits takes information. 
  • Installmentcard extortion: Payment card information is stolen utilizing physical skimming gadgets. 
  • Misfortuneor robbery: Portable drives, tablets, office PCs, documents, and other physical properties are lost or stolen. 
  • Unintendedrevelation: Through oversights or carelessness, touchy information is uncovered. 
  • Obscure In a little of number of cases, the genuine rupture strategy is obscure or undisclosed.

Recently, the big e-commerce business giants Paypal also disclosed that a data breach had occurred at a payment processing that Paypal had acquired earlier this year. PayPal Holdings Inc. said Friday that an audit of its as of late obtained organization TIO Networks demonstrated proof of unapproved access to the organization's system, including some private parts where the individual information of TIO's customers and customers of TIO billers were stored. PayPal did not clear when or how the information rupture incident occurred, neither one of the its uncovered insights about the sorts of information being stolen by the programmers, yet the organization confirmed that its stage and frameworks were not influenced by the incident.

Similarly, recently another breach occurred in Uber Technologies Inc. wherein the hackers stole the data of about 57 million customers and drivers.Uber also paid the hackers money to not make the data public and wanted to conceal the breach but it was disclosed. The organization intends to discharge an announcement to clients saying it has seen "no confirmation of misrepresentation or abuse attached to the incident." Uber said it will give drivers whose licenses were traded off with free credit protection observing and data fraud protection.


But the thing is that what do we learn from these incidents. Even though how strong your security maybe, it can always be broken . Just as you can easily set a password, someone else can break it too. Personal and Private data holds a very important place in every person’s life as it defines how a person actually lives. And if it gets into other person’s hands, it is certainly not a good thing. That is why we felt the need to educate you people about data breaches as you will surely not want to see your personal information and data floating on some webpage that you never even saw. The only thing we need to remember is that just as the systems and security is getting smarter, the hackers are too, so the user also has to take his share of steps and  protect himself and his data. After all, your security is in your own hands.

Stay Safe. Stay Secure. :)
