Security Breaches are Becoming a Certainty

It has become clear, with the growth in use of the internet, mobile devices and social networking, that avoiding security incidents has become more difficult. Recent research, however, shows that they are a near certainty.

"A recent survey by the Ponemon Institute found that the threat from cyber attacks is nearing statistical certainty -- 90 percent of U.S. businesses were hit by at least one security breach in the last 12 months. Almost one in two said there was a significant increase in the frequency of cyber attacks over the past year, and 77 percent said attacks are more severe or difficult to contain."
