The Biggest Security Breaches of 2013

January 14, 2014

In 2013, millions of accounts were compromised. Customers suffered and businesses lost millions of dollars due to the massive security breaches that took place. However, these security breaches are only expected to increase. Through 2016, the financial impact of cybercrime will grow 10% per year due to the continuing discovery of new vulnerabilities.

So what does that mean for businesses?

That the importance of protecting their assets, while investing in security should be a top priority. For example, the Adobe data breach of 2013 was the largest breach in security, where there were unconfirmed reports of hackers attaining 150 million accounts and exploiting customers’ data. The breach cost them millions of dollars and displays the importance of finding a solution that works.
