It seems like it was just yesterday that cyber attacks were rarely in the headlines and only involved 'obvious' targets. Today, anybody can become a victim, with hundreds of millions of private records having been compromised in the past year alone through data breaches and vulnerabilities.

Here are three key lessons we can learn from 2018's biggest data breaches.
