Data breaches, the theft of data from your organization, are a nightmare for every CISO and IT admin.
Most breaches are the result of data leaks, malware or ransomware, phishing, DDoS attacks, guessed passwords, and lost or stolen hardware.
In short: A data breach is a real, huge business risk!
And it happens to the best of them: Facebook, amazon, Twitter, the Marriott Group. Together, they lost over 1.2 billion data sets in the past 4 years. In most cases, personal data was stolen and sold on the darknet.
Data breaches come at enormous cost, not only for the customers impacted by the loss, but also for the companies. In addition to the high fines imposed for GDPR violations, it is the costs for recovery and restoration that really hurt: 4,35 millionen dollar. According to a study conducted by IBM in 2021, this is the average cost of a data breach to a company.
