This past Thursday, Global informational services group Experian announced that one of its clients had been involved in a massive data breach, T-Mobile.

The CEO of T-Mobile John Legere released a letter to consumers that explained the breach in more detail and goes on to say that “Experian has assured us [T-Mobile] that they have taken aggressive steps to improve the protection of their system and of our data”. Upon finding out about the breach, Experian said that it took immediate action and secured the server, initiated a comprehensive investigation, and notified U.S. and international law enforcement.

With data breaches happening so often nowadays to all types of companies, it’s hard to think that any of our data is safe anymore.
