How safe is your customers’ data?
PCI (payment card industry) breaches are everywhere, and they’re not necessarily due to external hackers. Many of the top breaches occurred because of internal data leaks due to employee negligence or malicious insider jobs.
Whatever the cause – the damages to any business, regardless of size, can be crippling. Take Home Depot’s latest scandal, for example. It reached a settlement after their massive data breach exposed the email addresses and credit card details of more than 50 million customers. In addition to the $19.5 million it has already paid out in compensation, the home improvement retailer will pay an additional $25 million.
