HOW TO PREVENT A DATA BREACH & WHAT TO DO IF IT HAPPENS TO YOUR COMPANY

The first step in prevention is understanding what a data breach is and how it’s different from other cybersecurity attacks. A data breach is an incident wherein information is taken or stolen from a system without the authorization of the owner. This information is usually personal, such as a driver’s license, social security number, or medical records.

Protecting this information is critical, and companies need to be proactive when safeguarding against a data breach. Breach prevention in the digital age requires advanced technology solutions like network firewalls, encryption, backup, malware protection, vulnerability scanning and more. 

There are many types of breaches. Some are a result of employee error within an organization, and some are targeted attacks from external sources. Although no two data breaches are the same, they all have negative consequences, ranging from legal fines to having to close your doors for good. Being prepared with a data breach response plan can help mitigate some of the ramifications.
