Hard Drive Recovery Associates, an Irvine, CA based hard drive recovery service, would like to announce the publication of their new post on data security. The post is aimed at helping readers better understand how to avoid becoming a victim of data hacking or deal with cybercrime. With the year only being about halfway through, the number of cybercrimes has already, according to the post, reached alarming rates.
“In the third week of February, MGM Resorts declared that the personal information of its close to 11 million guests who have been at one of their hotels and resorts was dumped and released on a hacking forum,” the article says. “Published on the hacking site were millions of complete names, addresses, contact numbers and birthdates. Members of the tech press were quick to confirm the accuracy of the released information by getting in touch with the published names in the forum and, true enough, the information is accurate.”
This massive data breach occurred months ago and has only recently been brought to light. Anyone with any sort of online presence is at risk of having their information accessed and used by people or entities that have no business using said information. There are ways, however, of ensuring that no one can access another party’s information without their permission.
The first step is to determine whether or not one’s data has been breached. Using certain online resources, one can find out which data breaches their information has been involved in and whether or not these data breaches have affected them. Once one has determined whether or not their data has been leaked, one can then start working on finding out what data has been leaked. “If you are now 100% certain that your data has been leaked, it is time to determine what information about you has been leaked. Leaked information can be classified as least sensitive (your full name, street address), more sensitive (payment methods, email addresses), and most sensitive (security codes of your payment options, social security numbers),” the article says.
Once one has identified what has been taken, they can look for outside help. Many companies whose data has been breached will offer assistance to those whose information has been compromised. Recovering from identity theft can be a very expensive and time consuming process, and it is nearly impossible without some sort of assistance. If the company offers to help with the recovery process, it is often in one’s best interests to accept this help.
