It is getting BLOODY out there! This isn’t a case of drawing first blood.. or last blood… it is not the end of something… it is still the beginning of something!
In case some of you haven’t heard LifeLabs, which is a Canadian healthcare laboratory testing company, suffered a MASSIVE data breach in October!
What was lost?
👉 Up to 15 million records (1/3 of Canada!!!!!) of personal information stolen. (Name, addresses, Health card numbers, etc)
👉 Test results from 85,000 Ontarian’s were also stolen
👉 Your sense of security and feeling safe!
LifeLabs admits to have paid the the Criminals the ransom payment to get the data unlocked. 🤦♂️🤦♀️
This is obviously very serious and 1/3 of the Canadian population may have their sensitive data stolen and exposed. Most likely to be sold on the dark web to the highest bidder!
What can you do?
I am sure your first thought from anger is to SUE LifeLabs.. and that may be an option.. I am sure lawyers are hearing pitches of class action suits as I type this… but…
This doesn’t get the data back… will it prevent further fails like this? Maybe… hasn’t worked so far…
I am sure many are very angry over this right now!
