Users relaxed about being hackedNew research from the RAND Corporation suggests that consumers whose security data has been compromised by hackers generally stick with the same service provider, with only half of them even bothering to change their passwords.

It seems to suggest that as cyber attacks become an everyday feature of modern life, both providers and their customers appear to be adopting a blitz spirit and accepting the inevitable.

Have you updated your passwords? Have you changed providers due to their being hacked? It’s likely the answer is ‘no’ to at least one of these – and you won’t be alone.
