MRIS is committed to notifying you about news alerts that could impact your business. LinkedIn has confirmed that some members of the social networking site have had their passwords compromised. Some news outlets are reporting that 6.5 million LinkedIn users may be impacted. It is highly recommended that anyone with a LinkedIn profile immediately change their password.

- Frequently change your password
- Do not reuse passwords
- Never use the same password on multiple sites
- Do not share passwords
