The thought of experiencing a corporate data breach will make any business leader and IT professional shiver. The consequences of losing valuable data, such as your employees’ personally identifiable information, can upend your business entirely if you aren’t prepared to mitigate the breach quickly and effectively. And, unfortunately, these events are happening more frequently than ever. In fact, data breaches in 2018 compromised the personal information of millions of people around the world. Some of the most high-profile corporate victims last year included T-Mobile, Quora, Google, and Orbitz.
Despite these high profile cases taking credence in the media, small and medium size businesses are tempting targets for cyber criminals, too. According to the Verizon 2019 Data Breach Investigations Report, 43% of all cyber attacks target small businesses.
