Companies from small and medium businesses to enterprise organizations are aware how damaging a data breach could be, but still aren't doing enough to prevent them. Analyzing everything from how files are saved and stored, evaluating third-party providers, and real-time security monitoring are all important steps to keeping data more secure, whether on-prem or in the cloud.
To make matters worse, targeted attacks are expected to rise in 2015 - as organized groups test network security procedures, and then compromise vulnerable companies as they see fit.
"Hackers have so many things working their favor, from anonymous currencies and "Dark Web" sites which allow them an easy way to turn stolen information into real cash, to the nightmare it is to not only find them, but to have any real success in prosecution and recovery due (to) the global nature of the problem and the tangled mess of foreign jurisdictions," said Joe Caruso, Global Digital Forensics (GDF) CEO and CTO.
