a few months back i launched netflix on our roku at home, a window popped up showing that they have changed their privacy statement and that I would need to agree to it in order to continue... being that guy who reads eulas and privacy statements i read it... the change i had noticed from previous was to their "Security" section:
We believe we use reasonable administrative, logical, physical and managerial measures to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft and unauthorized access, use and modification. Unfortunately, no measures can be guaranteed to provide 100% security. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee the security of your information.
what was my response to netflix saying they cannot protect my information? i cancelled my account and had them remove all cc and customer information relating to my account... since then i have opened a new account using a burner cc and email address so if that information gets stolen it won't be a major setback... were my actions justified? in my mind yes because they were telling me outright that my information is not safe while in their possession... i have since then realized that they take many proactive steps to protect that as best as they can and i also have the responsibility to do the same...
maybe my rambling may have fit better under the hikvision thread that has been burning up for the past week rather than this one but this one brought my situation to mind...
"Hypothetically, what if this had happened to IPVM? Would the size/scale of the org change your opinion? Would you be more or less offended knowing IPVM had been hacked vs LI?"
It is not Hypothetically
it did happen
