On Tuesday (17 October 2017), South Africans woke up to the shocking news that massive data containing at least 33 million personal information was leaked and has been available on the Internet for at least 2 years. The information leaked included names, full identity numbers, income, employment history and even home addresses of 33 million South Africans.

It included information of 2 children as young as 3 years. Such breaches have happened before – Equifax (one of USA’s three major credit reporting agencies) was breached in May 2017 and at least 3 143 million records containing personal information were leaked. In light of these attacks is data in your systems safe? How best can you protect your business?
