In the last 48 hours, we’ve received dozens of messages asking about the recent Capital One data breach, detailed in this New York Times article. A similar data breach happened in April involving half a billion Facebook records in another cloud-related headline hack, and we had a similar influx from concerned AWS and Azure cloud users.
