Expert Reacted On News: Research exposes cyber security industry’s vulnerabilities

A staggering 97% of top cybersecurity companies have data leaks or other security incidents exposed on the dark Web, and on average, there are over 4 000 stolen credentials and other sensitive data exposed per company.
