Identity Assurance in the Digital Age
Digital security is commonplace in society, with people and corporations looking into the best possible ways of preventing data breaches. Passwords for various accounts are at the core of this and, when stolen, can open the door for even more information to be compromised. The average connected adult maintains five social media accounts, three separate emails, and over fifteen various internet-connected services. Over half of those users recycle their passwords across at least two of those accounts.
These numbers aren’t just because there’s more information out there. Techniques for the exploitation of stolen data have created a greater incentive for cybercriminals to engage in and traffic identity theft on a massive scale.

To explain this, one has to understand some basics of how breaches happen and where data travels when they do. By the end, the hope is that those armed with this knowledge will be inspired to further strengthen security protocols to prevent breaches in the future.
