Locking It Down and Keeping Watch: A 2017 Corporate and Law Firm Protection Guide
Anyone aware of current business news cannot avoid the flood of high visibility hacking and IP intrusion/theft. The issues have grown so ubiquitous that it isn’t shocking to hear U.S. companies and government agencies suffered a record 1,093 data breaches in 2016 alone, a 40-percent increase from 2015. On average, the cost of a breach has risen to $4 million per incident— up 29 percent since 2013. Now add state and federal regulations regarding corporate obligations to report, mitigate and protect against breaches, massive individual and class action liability, and reputational damage/loss of good will and you have a recipe for disaster.
