According to the Wall Street Journal, the revenues from the resale of data exceeds a staggering $1 trillion per year. It is estimated that 68% of websites are infected by BOTS, which are pieces of code someone installs on your computer to watch or steal from you. Additionally, every 50 seconds a laptop is stolen.
Reality is that safeguarding key employee and consumer personal information is becoming more important, yet more difficult. Organizations are much more likely to be targeted by identity theft operations than individuals. The amount of personal employee data a company typically stores makes it a prime source for hacks and thieves.
Increasing legislation holds companies liable if an employee’s or consumer’s identity is stolen using personal information being held by the company. The wonderful world of advancing technology brings with it much more exposure and risk that exceeds most company's ability to properly protect themselves.
