Half Of US

Recent studies have revealed that an estimated 47% of American Adults have had personal information compromised in one form or another in the past year. While this number is shockingly high, it does reflect the flood of news stories coming in almost daily about new security breaches and hacking rings. From the infamous “Heartbleed,” to international cyber espionage, it is a wonder the number is not higher. Especially when considering that a different, independent study has revealed that less than half of US companies doing business in an e-commerce environment have taken the necessary steps to protect their consumers. Perhaps that is why almost half of us have been compromised. http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2014/05/28/companies-unprepared-as-hacking-increases
