Richard Bejtlich: Keeping Consumers Safe
In this video, Katty Kay interviews Richard Bejtlich, Chief Security Strategist from FireEye on BBC World News, and explains that cyber security breaches are unfortunately very common, the public just doesn't usually hear about it. In one year alone, the U.S. government notified over 3,000 companies that they had each suffered a significant breach.
