The end of September, Facebook disclosed the discovery of a security flaw on its computer network that may have affected active accounts exposing the personal information of up to 50 million users including top executives Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg according to sources close to the investigation.
It seems as if no business is safe from falling victim to a data breach anymore. Target, Apple, Ashley Madison and a host of others have found themselves at the arms of hackers looking to steal, sell and compromise confidential information and data. And it isn’t just big companies either, in a recent study, it is reported that 55% of local businesses in the United States have experienced some form of security breach. Unfortunately, this is happening because businesses are not taking the proper security precautions to prevent unauthorized access to information.
