The Deal on Data Breach

June 19, 2019 Mark Bogner Uncategorized

If you’re not concerned about cybersecurity – you should be! Cybercrime is the fastest growing crime globally according to Cybersecurity Ventures. By the year 2021 cybercrime will cost the world $6 trillion annually. The United States tops the charts as the number one country hit with cyberattacks and data breaches. The main cause of data breaches are malicious or criminal attacks, with 76% of all breaches being financially motivated. This comes at a hug cost for business. The average cost of a data breach is $3.86 million (IBM).

No business is excluded from the risk of a cyberattack or data breach. When we think of data breaches we often think big business, but the fact is that 43% of all cyberattacks are aimed at small business. Small businesses may be specifically vulnerable because they may not have advanced measures to protect their data both internally and digitally. 28% of breaches involve internal actors and 12% of breaches involve privilege misuse.
