Data leaks should be managed like pest infestations

A well-built house serves one fundamental purpose: it protects humans from the elements. Over time, however, atrophy takes its toll. Windows begin to leak in the air; water finds its way around the foundation; and vermin tunnel down shelters in the cracks of building material.

Even the least responsible homeowner takes every step to prevent this from happening. You caulk the windows, patch the foundation, and call the exterminator at the first sign of trouble. The last thing anyone wants is a family of squirrels wreaking havoc in their attic over the winter, chewing on wires, and devaluing their property.

Yet when it comes to cybersecurity, such care is not given.

Nowadays, it seems that everyone’s data is as secure as leaving food out overnight. Large scale data breaches are so frequent that we fail to tell one from the other. The question isn’t who’s? been hacked anymore. Rather, it’s become a question of who hasn’t been hacked. Apple WhatsAppFacebookEquifaxCapital OneDesjardins, the list goes on and on. Sure, not all leaks affect us, and we might think that we’re safe because only our neighbors were affected. But in this case, like in many others, ignorance isn’t bliss. Media will cover data leaks, tell us to contact our credit agency or to change our passwords and then will move onto the weather. What might have once been met with anxiety is now being met with apathy?

Data leaks seem to sprout without anyone really knowing where they come from, like squirrels. Like squirrels, however, all it takes to ruin your day is one rabies-ridden runt to bite your dog or a particularly crafty critter to eat through your breaker. Once in a very long while, the resourceful rodent might even nibble through your plumbing and cause a flood throughout your house. The only thing to do when that happens is to call the exterminator, the plumber, the electrician, or all of the above. You don’t care anymore about who the culprit is, you just want to fix the huge mess they’ve made and hope the damage isn’t too bad, or too expensive.
