Nothing fills you with confidence in an IT contractor more than hearing its staff personal records were stolen by ransomware hackers. Right, Cognizant?

ID Protection?? Why bother

Is this going to be the next status quo from companies? Sorry we leaked all your data, here, have a crap service from us incase your PII is used elsewhere?

At some point, there needs to be some form of compensation to the Data Subject, beyond a crap ID checking service being chucked around for free.

Let's hope Data Protection Laws on either side of the pond don't just get used to fill up treasury coffers, I'm sure we'd hate to see Data Subjects being leveraged for financial gain now wouldn't we??? :)
