10 TB of Data Stolen from Canon

This is where I drag my soapbox back out and start calling for there to be executive and board level penalties for a data breach.

Photos, internal data, and all sorts of other Canon services offered to the public were hit with a ransomware attack that claims if Canon doesn’t pony up, the data will be leaked.

I certainly hope none of you had any private photos on that service. Otherwise they may not be private much longer. Considering how personal photos can be, a year of free credit monitoring hardly seems like fair compensation.

Does a year of free credit monitoring make up for having photos of your family on a porn site? Once your personal photos are ‘in the wild’ there is no telling where they might turn up. And a year of credit monitoring and a coupon for your service is supposed to make up for that?
