Getting Past the Noise: The Reality of the Equifax Breach

With yet another data breach hitting the news, this time with Equifax, it seems like the public has become somewhat desensitized to the consequences of major events. It’s just money, right?

Equifax Breach – Armor’s Take

| Founder & CEO

Another day, another breach. Armor weighs in on the Equifax breach of personally identifiable information (PII) for approximately 143 million Americans as well as UK and Canadian citizens. Those individuals impacted may not even realize they were affected, as credit agencies hold PII from other businesses. This illuminates not just the importance of security, but the role of corporate responsibility as it relates to people’s data. Our team is closely tracking the breach as it develops and continuing to monitor the Dark Web to share the latest insights and potential implications for other organizations.

Chris Drake

Founder & CEO

As the founder and CEO of Armor, Chris Drake oversees the growth, direction, and innovation of the company’s secure cloud services. He fights the status quo every day and ensures that the “smart creatives” at Armor are protected for the benefit of its customers. He understands and accepts the awesome responsibility customers have placed in Armor to protect their most sensitive data. Drake began his career by serving as a paratrooper in the U.S. Army’s storied 82nd Airborne Division. While at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, Drake built some of the U.S. Army’s first private secure websites. After leaving the military, he established TargetScope, an interactive marketing and web development company that oversaw hundreds of websites and applications containing critical data. After hearing of clients getting hacked at other hosting providers, Drake saw a clear need in the market for a truly secure cloud and established FireHost (now Armor). In the first few years, Drake led Armor to 100 percent growth three years in a row, establishing the company as the industry’s leading secure managed cloud provider. He served as the company’s CTO in 2014 to help drive its continued innovation and returned to the CEO post in March 2015. Along the way, Drake became a sought-after speaker and writer on topics surrounding the cloud, security, and compliance. He’s often quoted in major industry news sites and speaks at leading industry events. In 2013, he won the Tech Titans Emerging CEO award, which is given to the top chief executive of a successfully emerging business. Drake was acknowledged as one of the top “40 under 40” business leaders by the Dallas Business Journal and received the University of North Texas Distinguished Young Alumni Award. He holds a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing from the University of North Texas.
