It's impossible not to be aware of the major data breaches impacting businesses around the world in the past several years. Almost without exception, these breaches have devastating consequences for the business, largely because of the effect they have on their customers.
I have a file folder full of letters from organizations warning me that they've fallen victim to hackers. Without exception, they're apologetic but can offer me little in exchange except for a free credit report. Thanks, guys. Thanks a lot.
