“Protect ALL the things!”

USPS has been in the news recently. Roughly 750,000 employees, both former and current, had their private data stolen.


Hopefully this will be a bit of a wake-up call for companies, so they’ll put just as much effort into securing their employee data as they do for their customer data… It seems like everyone is getting breached these days…

I’m a bit more paranoid about this sort of thing than most, though. Whenever filling out paperwork or online forms, I tend to wonder a bit (and sometimes ask) how they are keeping my information secure.

[UPDATE 11/24/2014 — Sony Pictures was apparently breached. Not only did their internal files and emails get leaked, but I guess their information is being held for ransom. Ouch!]
