The breach of 500 million user account details from Yahoo has proved once again that user details are too easily breached, and that businesses are not detecting the breaches of their users’ data. We’ve seen over a billion records released in 2016 alone, so what does this mean for consumer privacy? Why did it take two years for Yahoo to disclose the breach? Yahoo said “most” of the breached passwords were encrypted with an MD5 hash, but why weren’t they all secured? Who was the state sponsored attacker?

In this webinar we will explore the case of the Yahoo breach, asking the opinions of our guest speakers on the aforementioned points, if breaches of this size will continue to happen and what businesses can do to better prepare and protect themselves.

Key takeaways:

  • How to better prepare in the case of a major breach of customer data
  • What a state sponsored attacker is capable of, and why are they taking such large amounts of credentials?
  • What levels of security should you be placing on users personal data?
  • Has 2016 been worse than previous years for data breaches?
