Albert Einstein once observed: "Technological progress is like an axe in the hands of a pathological criminal." His words were eerily prophetic of the continuous news of data breaches in the retail and banking sectors.

Data breaches can be financially catastrophic as they drive costs to repair the damage, costs to secure their systems, costs to repay the consumers, losses in profits, losses in consumer confidence, and lawsuits seeking damages for alleged negligence. Intense media and Congressional scrutiny have classified all data breaches as direct attacks on privacy, and any company that has possession of personal identification information should consider itself in possession of potentially explosive material.

Although the headline-making breaches are highly sophisticated, most attacks simply exploit lax security practices. In fact, Verizon's 2014 Data Breach Investigations Report found that 78 percent of the attacks were of very low or low difficulty. That means that in more than three-quarters of all breaches, attackers used basic methods that required few resources and no software customization. That's the bad news. The good news is that the vast majority of security breaches can be prevented by implementing and enforcing basic security best practices with proven technologies.

Join our panel of experts as they discuss how to implement data security best practices, and how to prepare your experts with a crisis response plan to avoid being another headline.
