The Guardian reported recently that the most extensive collection of breached data in history had been discovered, comprising of more than 770 million email addresses and passwords.

The 87 GB data dump containing data breaches from thousands of different sources was discovered by a security researcher in December 2018.  In total, there were 1,160,253,228 unique combinations of email addresses and passwords and 21,222,975 unique passwords.

Dragon takes the security of your data extremely seriously, and this security begins from the very moment that you sign up to use any of our services such as the Dragon Exchange (DRGx) or to use the Dragon Social Wallet.  Dragon has a number of policies in place conforming to prevailing industry standards and international regulations designed to prevent any illicit activity.  When you join Dragon’s ecosystem, we verify your identity using our cutting edge ‘Know Your Customer' and ‘Anti-Money Laundering' (AML) technologies which provide you with peace of mind.

The security experts at Dragon also conduct comprehensive network security testing using the same systems used by governments, banks, telecoms and international corporations to enhance security and minimise any disruption to services.  This regular testing eliminates any vulnerabilities and ensures that Dragon complies with all relevant security measures.

It is vital that you use a unique password for each online account that you have or to use a password manager such as 1Password or LastPass, to store a random, unique password for every service you use.  Plus, they help you generate a completely random password for all of your different sites and apps and they are much safer to use than reusing the same password for all your sites.

Dragon has no affiliation with 1Password or LastPass, but we hope that you take some time to review your security procedures and change your passwords on a regular basis.  If you would like to find out more about how Dragon keep your data and digital assets secure, visit our website to read our Privacy, AML and KYC policies.
