Daines Comments on Latest Yahoo Security Breach

GREAT FALLS, Mont. — U.S. Senator Steve Daines released the following statement on Yahoo’s disclosure that more than 1 billion accounts were attacked: 

“The Yahoo breach is a glaring example of how vulnerable our digital information is,” Daines stated. “Private companies must uphold the highest standard to combat cyber criminals and prevent future breaches.”

In September, Yahoo disclosed that 500 million users were attacked in 2014. 

Before serving in Congress, Daines worked in the technology sector for more than twelve years. He served as vice president of Montana-based RightNow Technologies, a global leader in cloud computing and multi-billion dollar technology company that became Bozeman, Montana’s largest commercial employer.
