eBay is the latest in a long line of organisations to have suffered a data breach, with hackers taking personal information such as names, addresses and phone numbers. This latest breach is yet another reminder for companies to check their policies for protecting critical information.
Many managers believe that a data breach will not happen to them. However, it is not only external threats that are a cause for concern. Research from The Ponemon Institute revealed that as many as 35% of data breaches are caused by human error. Organisations who fail to properly protect an individual’s data find themselves in a spiral of loss of trust, customers and revenue. Perhaps more daunting than the financial loss and operational impact upon your business following a data breach is the public backlash. Consumers are notoriously unforgiving, and a loss of their trust would be disastrous. As a result, and as proven by numerous examples, organisations need to ensure they are doing all they can to adequately protect data.
