We all know the drill: The internet is the gateway to everything.
Every major service you use, every major piece of information you need to know about the world, every piece of data you have access to — everything.
But in 2016, the biggest data breach in history left millions of people in a state of shock, and more than 300 million were left without access to their bank accounts, Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, or medical records.
The breach, which affected nearly 5.6 million accounts across over 2,500 US credit card networks, is the biggest and most devastating to date.
It was the result of a breach that was not authorized and not carried out by a government agency.
It is also the largest data breach on record.
But, just like the internet, it’s not the only one out there.
The breach happened in 2017, and has only been patched up a handful of times since then.
It’s hard to imagine a scenario where the same breach could happen in 2018, 2020, or 2030.
The vast majority of data breaches happen over the course of a few months.
The most recent example of this was the 2016 Sony hack, which took down nearly 200 million accounts.
But what happened to the US government?
The Department of Homeland Security and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence both issued a statement saying that the breach “is not the result in any way of a government operation, nor is it the result as a result of the actions of any individual or group.”
The agencies have made it clear that the vast majority have been secured, that they are working to restore access, and that they plan to do this as soon as possible.
The FBI is also working with banks to assist with the restoration of customer data, as well as other services.
The FBI’s Cybersecurity Unit has also been notified, and the Department of Defense has been notified.
And the Office for Civil Rights has been contacted.
It has also sent out an alert to all US Department of Justice employees and contractors.
It is important to note that the majority of the breaches occurred between late January and early June, with the last one occurring in late July.
The rest of the breach occurred from late July until the end of September.
The largest data breaches were conducted between August through September.
We’ve covered several of the most recent major breaches on the Deep Web, but this one will be our first look at the most important data breach of the past decade.
