As data breaches become more commonplace and numerous, and businesses lose money and customers due to ransomware, phishing and other cyberattacks, it’s critical to stay ahead of the criminals and take measures to prevent your company from becoming the next victim. Examine case studies covering real security breaches, mistakes made along the way, lessons learned from others’ missteps and how to implement smarter security and privacy measures for your company.
