What do companies like Equifax, Marriott, and Solarwinds have in common? They all have, unfortunately, fallen victim to significant breaches to their network security.

Now that’s a concerning statistic. It’s a great reminder to be mindful of the information shared virtually; especially for those like me who often take the power of the internet for granted.
