Over the past few years, we have seen a spike in major data breaches from noteworthy businesses such as Target, Home Depot, and Sony (to just name a few). While data breaches continue to dominate headlines, the news often focuses on the cost to the business and consumers. What is often missing are the details on how attackers gained access to the organization in the first place.
There are far more data breaches than we hear about because if customer data wasn’t compromised, companies are typically not mandated to share their stories. That being said, one thing is for sure: attackers are becoming more sophisticated and finding new ways to dodge company security to access important data.
