Simply put, a data breach is when an individual’s name plus a Social Security number, driver’s license number, medical record or financial record (credit/debit cards included) is exposed because of a hacker. This exposure can occur either electronically or in paper format. Many times, these breaches consist of the exposure of usernames, emails, and passwords, sometimes without involving sensitive personally identifying information. However, there is a growing trend of breaches upon companies and organizations which are exposing very sensitive information at an alarming rate.

Breaches impact all sorts of industries, from medical organizations, government agencies, as well as companies large and small.

The fact is that a data breach can sink your business costing thousands to millions of dollars in legal fees and other expenses if you’re not properly protected.

Breaches happen, but did you ever wonder how these data breaches actually affect an organization’s reputation? A recent survey found that it takes an average of one year (sometimes longer) for a victim organization to restore its reputation after a hack. Can your business survive a full year before regaining its reputation? Like most other businesses, probably not.

Jim Slick, CEO of Slick Cyber Systems, a security and networking expert for more than 30 years, recommends that every business should perform a risk analysis to understand where your business’s possible weaknesses exists. If you are unable to perform a risk analysis, then contact an expert to help review your systems. The security experts will be able to provide guidance and then develop a plan to either eliminate or mitigate as much of the risk as possible. If you have a plan, make sure that the plan is updated and tested so that everyone within the company understands that security does not just belong to your I.T. dept., but is a shared responsibility of every employee and executive of the company.
