The Fractured Fairytale of Data Security

It seems like this year, everyone's in on the nightmare.

This week it's the IMF.

Last week it was Citi.

The week before that, Lockheed Martin.

It happened to the mighty New York Yankees.

And before that, Sony.

Around that same time, Epsilon and RSA were dealing with the same thing.

Even Bank of America faced a minor threat.

And, somewhere in the world, Julian Assange might or might not have data a major U.S. bank would rather not see become public information.

The only thing this security-breach fairy tale (nightmare?) is missing is some sort of knight in shining armor to protect our financial and identity data from falling into the wrong hands.
