Data has never been lost as much as in 2019

All Time High

2019 likely will break a record for the most data breaches and exposed records ever.

Accidental exposure

Most data breaches are accidental ones.

While malicious actors have been responsible for most incidents, it is accidental exposure of data on the Internet that has put the most records at risk. This year over 6 billion records have been made freely accessible, thanks to misconfigured databases, backups, endpoints, and services.

Inga Goddjin, executive vice president of Risk Based Security

There were 5,183 data breaches reported with 7.9 billion records exposed in just the first nine months of this year, according to Risk Based Security
That's an increase of 33.3% in breaches and 112% in total records over the same period in 2018.


Everyone's Privacy In Danger

The companies that collect our data are a danger to the users because they are not able to keep it secret and safe.

The stronger the company, the more the personal data is in danger. Facebook is the best example. State services are not better.

Where is your data?

Is your privacy safe in the cloud? Will it rain?


I've downvoted you for bid bot misuse with no intent to advertise but the skim profits on your posts

@steemflagrewards @steemcleaners

You downvoted me, nice! As you like it, Sir. Anyway, I am glad to see a little engagement on my post. I would like a payout for every comment on my posts.

Misuse! Is delegating for votes or the membership to voting circles the good use of Steem? Not talking about the use of downvote bots and pools, about Actifit posts with ten words, hundreds of votes for a self audience?

Did you read the post? What do you think about data breaches? In which clouds is your personal data?

Let's call @steemflagrewards @steemcleaners, @freebornangel, @mrhill, @holydog, @ciliegia, @amico, @exhaust, @justinparke, @erode, @hyperbatata, @treepi, @tenkminnows, @edb and @steevc to downvote! Where's @cheetah?


Thank you


Nice :)

Hey @droida, here is a little bit of BEER from @freebornangel for you. Enjoy it!

Any rewards not voted to you by the community are rewards not given willingly by the community.
Steem is a commons just now getting a handle on the bullies.

Buying rewards breaks pob.
The original designer of the math flagged vote sales.
He left once stinc made it clear they were going to tank the price.
Here we are 2 years later.

If you want to be somebody here, and get the easy votes, get out and meet the folks.
We are a tough crowd, but not unreasonable, imo.

I understand the incentive of the community to lower the value of a post.
Bullies are still there. Paid, mutualised or free, downvotes come from bidbots, voting circles and justiciaries calling to downvote.

Buying rewards breaks problem. Right! Maybe the steemeconomy killed the proof-of-brain.
Having to buy to get engagement is a real problem and the majority of newbies give up after a few posts. Steem has probably the highest bounce rate of all social networks.

We are who we are.
If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere.

Flags keep the culture toeing the line.
Good content, or gtfo!

If you are being bullied, speak up, you won't escape notice.
Be sure to have the facts on your side.

Here's your DRAMA. Don't spend it all in one place!
