The North Pole has announced a breach exposing billions of children’s information from both past and present. Most importantly the naughty list was also exposed and may be for sale on the Dark Web.

Obviously, this is just a joke but it seems as if we hear of a new breach every week. Last week's Vtech breach using wireless toys as the vector is just one sad example. The holiday season is the time of the year when we think of family and a time to be generous and kind to others. Unfortunately, not everyone thinks this way. There are those for whom this is the most profitable time of year, and I am not just talking about the retailers on Black Friday. The cyber-criminals of the world are lurking and trying to take advantage of the good will and deal seekers during this season.
