Learn from last year’s big breaches and get head of the game to ensure your firm – or your clients – are not the next to feature in damaging headlines.
After previous years of big data breaches and expensive security plans, cybercriminals still managed to astound us in 2016 with some of the biggest breaches and disclosures to date. These included: Yahoo, where more than one billion accounts were compromised; Dyn, a distributed denial of service attack fuelled by roughly 100,000 IoT nodes; Panama Papers, the scandal involving 11.5 million documents leaked from Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca; and the US Democratic National Committee (DNC), where 50,000 emails were leaked during the 2016 presidential campaign.
With money being invested from every corner of the globe, to try and protect our increasingly cyber existence, what can we learn from the last year’s breaches and what should we be prepared for in 2017?
