Recently there were two huge data breaches of two very large companies. Both organizations collected a ton of information about their clients. The breaches were both spectacular in scope. Furthermore, both were among the largest known data breaches.
I see a large contrast between the Marriott breach and the Equifax breach. The difference between the two massive breaches clearly demonstrates the importance of basic security methods.
On Wednesday I attended an early screening of Oliver Stone’s Snowden. After the movie was a live interview with director Oliver Stone, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Shailene Woodley, and Edward Snowden. Aside from it being a great movie I want to discuss the themes and thoughts it leaves the viewer.
From a technology standpoint there are some very important points in the movie to consider.
