Geek Alert: Epsilon Security Breach

If you haven't heard, the world's largest email marketing provider, Epsilon had a massive security breach.  There's a good chance that if you've participated in the US (or world) economy some of your data ended up at Epsilon.  This is pretty big.

A few takeaways:

  • This is an example of how much gets outsourced.
  • This is an example of how outsourced services can produce a critical point of failure.
  • You want to keep up on this in case.
