Security News Gets Personal

Trey Jackson has some chilling security data… but this is about identity security:

* 1 out of every 6 people in the U.S. have had their personal information breached in the last 100 days. US population = 296,689,763.

* 1 out of every 4 people over the age of 18 have been exposed to identity breaches in the last 100 days. US pop. over 18= 209,128,094 – That’s 24%

Trey continues:

* This is alarming. At this pace, every consumer record in our country will have been exposed/breached/stolen in less than two years.

* I.D. Theft… If it hasn’t found you yet, just give it a minute. So far I have found that 49 50+ million (#growing as I research) consumers have had their private information breached since 4-08-05…
