5 lessons learned from recent retail data breaches

Data Breaches – the “new norm”?

Much of the recent news, like the payment data breach at Goodwill Industries, has a sense inevitability. We are e being nudged from How could this happen?” to “Who is next, and how bad will it be?”

Please recall that in April, Heartbleed verified that at least 66 percent of the Internet was prone to plunder. Everybody using Facebook, buying stuff on Amazon or viewing Hulu or Netflix was in the danger zone.

Data breaches were 30 percent higher in 2013 than 2012, and show no signs of slowing down this year. But most of them have been determined that an ounce of prevention would have saved many people the angst of a breach.
