Equifax Hones In On Cyber Security Holes

With the recent news of huge conglomerates such as HBO and Equifax suffering from cyber attacks, companies are heavily arming themselves against the threat of a hack. However, these recent hacks highlight the continuing difficulty of protecting against them. If someone wants to get in, they’ll usually find a way.
