"This Week in Data" is a weekly infographic that aims to serve as a quick and easy way for our readers to catch up on the latest news about the people and organizations that are shaking up the world of big data, cloud computing, and all things data storage.

Happy Friday the 13th! First, a quick PSA to make sure those backups are functioning correctly and continuously, just in case disaster does strike on this notoriously unlucky day. Now... let's get to the news:

This week we saw Microsoft fix a 15-year-old Windows vulnerability, a report by a U.S. senator tells us we may need to lock our cars in a way that doesn't involve physical keys, and Box has decided to hand over their keys (the encryption kind) to their customers. 

Find more details for all of our stories in the graphic and links below, and feel free to let us know if we missed any big stories in the world of cloud, big data, or data security.
