Chief Analyst Trust Officer Tom Patterson said in his speech to Multimedia Journal:
“The targets of significant cyber threats remain companies that gather vast quantities of customer data.
A major leak
“The result for hundreds of millions of compromised people. Whether attributions ultimately point to profitable transnational criminal gangs. Or international intelligence services with global strategic motifs. Besides, home-grown or grind-axed insiders, or terrorist files,” Patterson said.
“There must no longer be a dependence on protection. Especially, for sectors that are among major stuff, like publicity, legal, accounting, shipping, and more. Moreover, national enemies know who they are and now they have a virtual goal on a logo.”
The CEO of nCipher Defense, Cindy Province addressed the significance of the violation.
“There is a major leak of 763 million documents. Emails were not only available freely to anyone with an Internet connection but also revealed contact numbers, date of birth, mortgage sums, interest rates, and social media pages.
Like a lottery
“This is a lottery for cyber-criminals who can easily collect information. Further, use it as a bait for attacks against phishers and identity theft. In order to retrieve even more sensitive information,” she continues.
Moreover, Provin also described the seriousness of the situation for both owners and customers.
“Some 68 percent of the Americans fear identity robbery. For good reason, as we learned from the customers in a new survey on cybersecurity. Further, in today’s cyber-economy organizations must be cautious and broaden their coding practices to include all personal knowledge. Furthermore, to protect, that it is worthless if it falls into the wrong hands.”
Data a precious property
Data soon became one of modern world’s most precious properties. Continuing negotiations are being held on the issues of antitrust regulation and information privacy by digital giants monopolizing info.
Rapid human growth will only strengthen the modern currency, and companies will continue to be the victims of cyber threats without sufficient security barriers.
A precious target of criminals
A data infringement is an event involving the stolen or destruction of information from a server without the owner’s consent or permission. Further, a violation of data may happen to a small business or big corporation. Sensitive, proprietary, or classified material, such as card numbers, consumer information, trade secrets, or national security issues, can be included in the stored data.
The consequences of theft of data can damage the credibility of the target business because of a “confidence deal.” Victims and their clients could still suffer from financial harm if related it contained documents in the compromised information.
Based on the amount of personal information identity details (PII) reported between January 2005 and April 2015, the most stolen record category was the second most recent financial records.
