Search for and examine a case of an e-commerce site that has been compromised within the last 6 years. In your own words, summarize (2–3 paragraphs) what happened, addressing the following information in detail:
- How many customers were affected and what kind of data was lost? If the organization was not sure (or did not say) what was lost, state this in your post and discuss any potential consequences for customers.
- What steps did the organization take to address concerns? Alternatively, what lessons does this example offer?
Provide a reference (with link) for your case example.
