Did you know that the cost of replacing information and restoring data after a data breach is on the decline? Similar to last year’s trend, both the organizational cost of data breach and the cost per lost or stolen record is declining. However, this does not mean that there are fewer attacks taking place. It is important to protect your data as securely as possible to guard both your business and your customers. It is estimated that 92 percent of data breaches are committed by outsiders, often through the misuse of weak or stolen credentials or through hacking. However, malware and physical attacks still take place. Nearly 80 percent of data breaches are rated as low difficulty, meaning that it was fairly easy for perpetrators to gain access to servers and databases full of information.
