More Information About Capsule Corp.

Capsule pharmacists then deliver the patient’s medication directly to their door. Founded in 2015, Capsule has expanded beyond New York City to more than a dozen other U.S. markets, including Chicago, IL, Austin, TX, Los Angeles, CA and Minneapolis, MN. Capsule employs approximately 800 people and brings in roughly $168 million in annual revenue.

What Are the Risks of a Data Breach?

Data breaches are becoming more and more common, especially over the past few years. In fact, as many as 15 million people fall victim to identity theft each year. Many of these cases of identity theft are the result of a consumer’s personal information being leaked through a data breach. According to the Identity Theft Resource Center, victims of identity theft spend an average of 200 hours and more than $1,300 recovering their identity.

Having your identity stolen is a serious problem that takes both time and money to resolve. In part, this is because about 83 percent of data breaches involve the exposure of sensitive information such as Social Security numbers, protected health information, home addresses, and bank account numbers. When put into the wrong hands, this information can be used to take out loans or open credit cards in your name. In some cases, criminals provide stolen information to the police if they are arrested or seek medical care in a victim’s name.
