Aftermath of a Data Breach Study
January 9, 2012, 12:00 am

 

We are pleased to present the findings of the Aftermath of a Data Breach  conducted by Ponemon Institute and sponsored by Experian® Data Breach Resolution. The study was conducted to learn what organizations did to recover from the financial and reputational damage of a data breach involving customer and consumer records.

 Consumer and customer information collected by organizations is at great risk due to employee negligence, insider maliciousness, system glitches or attacks by cyber criminals. Since 2005, according to the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse (PRC), 543 million records containing sensitive information have been breached. PRC says this number is conservative because they track only those breaches that are reported in the media and many states do not require companies to report data breaches to a central clearinghouse.
