In its 2013 Data Breach Investigations Report, Verizon Enterprise reports that 74 percent of data breaches to small businesses are “crimes of opportunity” – that is, crimes that occur because a hacker notices a weakness and exploits it. In addition, the report shows that nearly half (48 percent) of data breaches are enabled by in-house mistakes, often made by employees who have little or no familiarity with data security protocol.
TechInsurance recommends that IT professionals take the following steps to minimize clients’ exposure to preventable data breaches:
- Share the numbers.
- Provide training.
- Encourage standard security measures.
