Security is a hot topic these days among companies across the world. We are living at a time where the news of a security hack or a data breach is not uncommon. In the past year, Yahoo was in the news for it’s major security breach in 2013 where 3 billion accounts were compromised. Every single user who had an account at that time was supposed to have been affected with the security breach.
We as consumers should know whether our account is safe and free from data breaches. Fortunately there is a way where this can be checked. There is a website called “Have I been pwned?” that tells you whether your account has been compromised. All you have to do is go to this website https://haveibeenpwned.com/ and type in your email address.
Now almost every company is taking security very seriously with a demand of people with experience in Data/Network/Information Security because of recent Incidents in data/security breaches. Tesla, the premium company in the electric car market suffered a security breach last month where services that were hosted in their AWS Console were hacked since it was not password protected.
