    It's not just "personal" accounts, it's accounts that aren't paid corporate accounts. If they heard the term "personal", many small firms won't immediately make the intuitive leap that their free business hotmail account was also at risk. There are possible HIPPA and GPDR implications.

    Good call - you're right! I'll edit the original post.
