As the connectivity of our world increases, so too does our vulnerability to an attack on data. Since 2005 there have been 5,593 reported breaches with over 828 million records affected. If you are not seeing data breach attempts, you are not looking hard enough. So what kinds of attempts are being made on your private data, and what can you do about it? This course explores the threats to data security, the costs a company incurs with a data breach, how the law comes into play, and what employees can do to prevent data breaches.

A common way private information can be breached is through insider theft or, in other words, from inside the business itself. Other threats come from outside the business, such as hackers or subcontractors/third parties hired by your company. Your data can also be compromised as it is transmitted from place to place. Another common way is through sheer negligence; in fact, it is estimated that 30% of all data breaches are due to human error. Therefore, it is imperative you are aware of the scenarios where your data can be compromised and act accordingly. This training video provides you with the best practices to protect your data.

Utilize the materials presented in this course to better understand the threats your private data faces, as well as how to better protect it from those threats.
