Here’s a recent list of Data Breaches;
Citrix – reports of 6 terabytes of sensitive data stored in the Citrix enterprise network, including e-mail correspondence.
Verifications IO – 763,117,241 people have apparently had their records leaked and it is said to include emails, phone numbers, addresses, dates of birth, Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram account details, credit scoring and even mortgage info.
Gateshead Council – according to online sources sent letters containing private information to the wrong addresses.
A ‘Data Breach’ whilst often committed online can also happen offline and business security has to reflect that. The tactics used by cyber criminals are evolving continually and keeping abreast of all of this is a challenge.
These sort of attacks are not going away anytime soon. Ask yourself the question, does my business have the knowledge, skills, technology and procedures in place to recognise a data breach and the mechanisms to the Information Commissioner? If the answer is no it is not too late to book a place on our conference of 22nd March in Douglas, Isle of Man.
