Even Trump Gets Hacked
In the news again this week we see yet another global giant being hacked and sensitive customer data has been leaked. A journalist in the US uncovered the fact that several major banks have linked fraudulent activity on some of their customers accounts back to the Trump empire.
All of the victims of the suspicious charges on their accounts had recently stayed in one of the chains luxury hotels. Internet security is quickly becoming the area that businesses and personal users need to have in place. Asides form the fact that this secures your own personal information, it is also more important to protect with the passing of legislation to force companies to be accountable for any breaches. Only last year Target, a large US based retailer was fined over $148 million in damages because of a huge, but reasonably simple to avoid, data leak.
This is just one in a long line of reports of large companies succumbing to the hackers in recent months.
