We're all Equifucked !

Every company is a tech company, and that's a big problem. Or rather, either every company is a tech company but most suck at it, or most aren't tech companies but should be. Either way, we're gonna have a bad time. Stock photo companies oughta be making more images of hackers because that cat burglar / hoodie dude behind a computer isn't going to cut it when sh*t hits the fan on a weekly basis.

Somehow, no one seemed to realize that connecting the Internet to everything was a terrible idea despite also being a great idea. We built information super-highways...yay, great...but most businesses forgot the guardrails.

The Equifax disaster is just warning shot compared to what's to come.

Saw a funny on the Detroit News - They ran a piece saying Equifax had a "Cyber Intrusion" - now doesn't that sound so much better than being hacked ? Makes you feel better about the whole thing to now doesn't it ?
