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.

Read the full report and also see USA Today’s coverage of it: “43% of companies had a data breach in the past year” — though in my view, the headline buries part of the lede.
