The year of 2018 was a rough year for many IT teams and cybersecurity experts and analysts around the world. The burdening task of ensuring compliance with GDPR regulations was just one major piece of the puzzle. Several companies also endured cybersecurity attacks on their databases, risking the trust and loyalty of millions of customers.
There were so many data breaches, including the Saks Fifth Avenue and Lord and Taylor breaches in which 5 million customer data records were compromised. The Sacramento Bee breach saw nearly 20 million data records compromised while the Panera Bread data incident had 37 million records breached. The overly publicized Facebook data breach, the Equifax data breach, the Yahoo! data breach, and the Uber data breach all came as quite the shock with millions of users’ data exposed. These are only the more controversial ones and the actual number of hacks and attempted hacks counts in the double digits.
These attacks will only increase as time goes on which is one reason your company will want to be on guard against such attacks. Not only do you need state-of-the-art IT infrastructure and an IT team comprised of highly skilled and qualified professionals, but you also need internal systems and methods that help to make sure your data and networks are impenetrable.
