Cyber Attack & Data Breach Response
I am convinced that there are only two types of companies: those that have been hacked and those that will be. And even they are converging into one category: companies that have been hacked and will be hacked again.
– (FBI Director) Robert Mueller, March 2012
Cyber attacks and data breaches are now common across all major business sectors. The unauthorized disclosure of personal information or other sensitive data can lead to revenue loss, reputation damage, fines, regulatory enforcement action, litigation and legal fees.
The average cost for each lost or stolen record containing sensitive and confidential information is over $100 million. A variety of factors contribute to data breaches, including human error or accident, illegal or malicious activity by individuals, and organized crime or other criminal enterprises.
