The Evolution of Data Leaks
The ways that bad guys take our digital stuff are constantly changing: Companies have gotten smarter about how they secure information, but hacking and phishing are rising—fast. Based on data from CyberScout and the Identity Theft Resource Center, we created a series of contour lines showing how frequently organizations were compromised by various methods over time. Areas with shallow slopes mean things are hovering around the status quo. Color bands that are close together mean the type of attack is quickly getting more (or less) frequent. So, don’t be the weakest link: Enable two-factor authentication, use a password manager, and never, ever click on that random attachment.
