Organizations worldwide were hit with a rude awakening this year in terms of data protection. From medical providers, to financial institutions, and government agencies, hackers this year did not discriminate in terms of who’s the next organization to be breached. As we stand to enter the New Year, let’s reflect on some of the largest data breaches that occurred in 2016.  

Yahoo said on Wednesday it had discovered yet another major cyber-attack, with more than 1 billion user accounts said to have been comprised in August 2013, making this the largest data breach in history.

This year is predicted to break records in terms of investment in cyber-security measures, with organizations predicted to allocate nearly nine percent of their entire IT budget to security.

The threat posed by cyber criminals seems to be growing larger and more sophisticated by the year and so does the spending on information security related products and services.

The Ponemon Institute recently published its 2016 Cost of Data Breach Study: Global Analysis, delving into the average costs of a breach by region, industry, and reason for being breached.

Cybercrime has been found to be the leading cause of data breaches within the healthcare industry for the second year in a row, according to the Ponemon Institutes’ Six Annual Benchmark Study on Privacy & Security on Healthcare Data.

The damage done by a breach is exponential and has the ability to impact millions of individuals lives. Companies can no longer choose to be ignorant to the fact that they could very well be the next victim of a data breach. Security is continuously evolving and staying up to date with the latest threats that could impact your organization could put you one step ahead of the bad guys.
