533 million Facebook accounts exposed – Interview with Prof Paul Haskell-Dowland

66% of Australians have a Facebook account – with over 16 million Australians using the social-media platform every month. And we would expect our personal information to be safe and secure.

But this month, the private data of 533 million Facebook accounts was made publicly available online – causing concern with cyber security experts.

I spoke with Professor Paul Haskell-Dowland, Associate Dean for Computing and Security at Edith Cowan University. Paul’s article on the recent Facebook Breach can be found at the Conversation.com

The website to discover if you have been a victim of this and other breaches is: haveibeenpwned.com – and you can add your email or phone number.
