Stark findings in new data breach study
In a report released today, the Ponemon Institute noted that 43% of companies were hit with a data breach resulting in the loss or theft of more than 1,000 records in the last year.
And if that’s not striking enough, consider the report’s further finding: 27% of companies had no response plan and/or team in place in the event of such breach.
Corporate governance, from a cybersecurity perspective, must be a priority. Frankly, it’s disturbing that it isn’t top of mind for everyone already.
