Security breaches that occurred recently will bear witness that cyberattacks continue to augment in size and tact, and thus, cybersecurity breaches continue to shock the world.
People benefit from the continuously-improving mobile devices in this society of connectivity, meaning more classified data are produced and stored on a daily basis. The problem with this is the risk of dealing with a cybersecurity breach also increases.
Unfortunately, falling prey to an attack by cyber criminals costs a fortune. Based on research, the average cost of a data breach is $3.8 million — a large sum that could be saved if cybersecurity measures are ensured. Although, as the volume and importance of data rises, a rather lax concern for data security is exhibited by businesses and national governments.
The Global Cybersecurity Index recently showed that cybersecurity is still not included in the national and industrial technologies’ strategies. Reportedly, 9 out of 10 UK organisations have insecurities in their data protection and feel more vulnerable to data threats.
Both businesses and governments have fallen prey to hackers in recent years. This infographic from Turrem Data, a reputable security distributor for digital and physical data, will give you an overview of the recent data hacks that shook the world.
