Breaches Galore: Even Microsoft
There are some things companies don't like to talk much about. If you are a "cyber-unaware" journalist, for example, and you head to the Microsoft PR and "news" site here, you will find oodles of interesting stories on where tech is going.
But, if you want to piece together details of the latest Microsoft data breach, you might want to head for any number of tech sites that have a higher focus on breaches.
For example, eWeekis out today with Why Microsoft's Cloud Email Breach is a Cause for Concern.In charge C-level types would have also studied sites like TechRadar with their "Outlook.com breach allowed hackers to read (some) emails for months."
Don't mistake our discussion onboard the Cyber-Armadaas critical of Microsoft. At least two of the people in CAhave formerly been with a Gold Partner of the Year software firm. Our respect for Microsoft couldn't be higher. (And that was beforethe GP/Y award.)

If your firm hasn't engaged the Cyber-Armadafor a free, no obligation review of your cyber-security risks,you are literally missing the boat.
