Not a day goes by without a data breach or a cyber-attack. No one seems to be immune, from government agencies to retailers, Big Four accounting firms, fast food chains and now credit reporting agencies. Whether the breach is due to lax security on the part of the organization, insiders going rogue or brute force by cyberterrorists, we all pay the price when data is compromised.
