As 2017 comes to a close, we look back on the cyber security news and talking points we covered this year. From the global WannaCry virus to the large scale data breaches, 2017 is definitely a year that will be remembered and hopefully, learned from.
December – Uber data breach, Company pays off hackers to keep quiet
2017 hasn’t exactly been the best year for the 68bn start-up company Uber.
November – Heathrow – Why was secret security data found on a London pavement?
Usually when Heathrow receives negative press it’s due to lost luggage or flight cancellations but last month, the headlines were very different.
October – Yahoo- What more could go wrong?
Yahoo, now owned by Verizon, is in the headlines once again and it seems that things are going from bad to worse for the internet giant.
September – Equifax – What’s happened since the breach?
Give credit where credit’s due, when it comes to our finances, whether business or personal, few of us can avoid using it.
August – WannaCry – Is the threat still out there?
It’s been 4 months since WannaCry caused misery by infecting over 230,000 computers across 150 countries in just one day.
