Breach: The Podcast About Data Leaks for The People Who Aren't IT Specialists

Not a year goes by without a couple of major data leaks, and the situation doesn't seem to get any better. Why? As in most cases, there's a series of human errors that led to the breach of Equifax, the credit reporting agency's database was breached. As a result, the personal data of 143 million people being leaked- in many cases, their social security numbers. This podcast (disclaimer: it's a branded one, published by a cybersecurity company, but you don't hear any advertising from it on the podcast) tells the story of the Equifax breach. It starts with what credit reporting agencies are, to begin with, and takes a very detailed look at the breach. You can hear excerpts from the congressional hearing on the breach, and interviews with the people who witnessed the breach first-hand.
