Why does cybersecurity matter in business?
With the increasing reliance on technology and the internet, cyber threats are becoming more sophisticated and frequent, posing a significant risk to businesses of all sizes. Take it from a recent data breach of a popular platform that exposed the data on three-quarters of a million users.
On August 14th, Discord.io, a custom invite service for the instant messaging service Discord, experienced a temporary shutdown following a data breach that exposed the information of 760,000 of its members. Leaked user data included sensitive user information such as usernames, Discord IDs, email addresses, billing addresses, and salted and hashed passwords. On its website, Discord.io claims they "believe that the breach was caused by a vulnerability in our website's code, which allowed an attacker to gain access to our database. The attacker then proceeded to download the entire database, and put it up for sale on a 3rd party site."
