It's easy to become immune to the frequent headlines about data breaches that compromise consumers' personal data.
That's why we give props to The New York Times reporters Josh Keller, K.K. Rebecca Lai, and Nicole Perlroth for their interactive graphic How Many Times Has Your Personal Information Been Exposed to Hackers, which helps connect the dots between data breaches and the all-too-real consequences for consumers.
A few easy clicks will open your eyes to the likelihood that your personally identifiable information, such as an birthday, email address, or Social Security number, may have been compromised in a hack attack.
Worried this puts you at greater risk for identity theft or think you'd like to proactively manage your identity? Check with your insurance company, financial institution, or employee benefits provider. Many companies offer LifeStages® Identity Management Services from CyberScout for low or no cost.
