Data Discovery and Classification - Think Like a Cybercriminal

Think Like a Cybercriminal

Let’s Just Not Tell Anyone Billions of User Records Were Hacked

Poor Yahoo, now Altaba. It was recently fined a whopping $35 million dollars by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), for sitting on its massive data breach for two years.
