Investment and or Retirement account cybersecurity and protection

Sorry, even this article is over 2 years old, and even though the specific
example it gives of someone being duped by fake customer service over
the phone is not so much my concern. However, the later part of the
article about all of the stipulations, fine print, and potential hoops to
jump through *IF* a cyberthief were to succeed in getting at your
accounts is more what has me concerned about that possible horrible
event of "I was doing what I was supposed to be doing from my
end to protect my accounts but somehow my money was still
stolen anyway and I can't get it replaced because of some technicality."

Here's the article from September 2018:
"Identity Theft: Are Your Investment and Retirement Accounts Protected?"

https://www.checkbook.org/washington...ment-accounts/

Just wondering if the rise of dark web profiles and big-company hacks
of millions of records, etc. leaves anyone else feeling... uneasy.

Thanks.
