“TJX data breach: At 45.6M card numbers, it’s the biggest ever” (Computerworld.com, 2007)
“2012 Sets New Record for Reported Data Breaches” (Riskbasedsecurity.com, 2012)
“Target Data Breach Spilled Info On As Many As 70 Million Customers” (Forbes.com, 2014)
Year after year the headlines have become more and more alarming. Each new data breach seems to be larger and more far-reaching than the one before. As a business owner, if these escalating cyber security issues have not spurred you to take action to protect your business, then perhaps the costs incurred by the breached companies will do the trick. Target for instance incurred more than $250 million in breach-related losses.
Now, your company may be a “David” compared to the Goliath companies we are talking about, but it’s critical to note that, with more and more regularity, hackers are targeting companies with fewer than 100 employees. Today, any small, mid-sized or large business that handles or stores private customer, patient or employee data would be wise to not ignore the inherent risks.
