Data Breaches On the rise

It wasn't just media hype. Data breaches (at least the known ones) jumped 44.7% in 2017, according to a thorough year-end review.

Here are few nasty numbers to impressing your friends at parties:

  • 1,579 total breaches
  • 158 million Social Security numbers exposed
  • 20% of the breaches resulted in exposing credit/debit card numbers

My quick math says almost 30% of breaches are due the sloppiness and malice employees and other "trusted" personnel. External hackers get big headlines, but how closely are you looking within?
