It has happened again. Snapchat’s data has been hacked exposing more than 200,000 photos that were sent through the social photo-sharing application. A third party application that allowed users to save photos sent through Snapchat was breached which led to the unfortunate data leak.
So how can this be a lesson to businesses? With the rise of cloud-based file sharing solutions, there comes a great risk that your confidential data is susceptible to being shared, altered or stolen. The Snapchat hack (aka “The Snappening”) comes as a warning to anyone sharing private information: you need to protect your valuable data.
