More data records were lost or stolen in the first half of 2017 than all of 2016

Even before last month’s Equifax and SEC breach announcements and Yahoo revising its report of a 2013 security incident to clarify that the event exposed every one of its three billion user accounts, that task – staying secure online – seemed overwhelming. Let’s look at the numbers.
