Breach Risk Prevention Best Practices

Companies take steps to apply data breach risk prevention best practices in order to minimize risks of attacks, and stay ahead of the game when the opponent is a hacker.

A recent report from Risk Based Security, 2020 Year End Data Breach QuickView Report, revealed that the total number of data breach events in 2020 decreased by 48% yet the number of data records that were exposed exceeded 37 billion—an increase of 141% compared to 2019. Ransomware attacks in 2020 also increased by 100%.

The impact of a data breach to your company could be significant and may result in:

  1. Temporary or permanent loss of company data
  2. Complete shutdown of operation
  3. Financial loss due to shut down, customer attrition, and/or remediation efforts
  4. Damage to company reputation
