Cyber Security: Data Privacy and Protection Challenges in 2015

A report says, “In the year 2014, Cyber attacks, security breaches have become a norm,” from Xbox players to Sony pictures - from small businesses to fortune 500 companies, everyone had to face the heat. The year 2014 reported an increase of 42% in the incidents resulting in loss of personal and private data. While, on the other hand hackers included jobless individuals to Administrations of countries such as North Korea, Russia, and china.

Well, amidst all this analysts predict greater threat to data privacy in the year 2015. Hackers have no special preference for any region or country or a particular industry, making every country and industry equally vulnerable. With the threat largely looming over their heads, top-notch executives of the companies across the globe are gearing up for the challenges.

FBI warns the industry of such malware – a malicious Legal Networking Events program that over-writes the data or makes it impossible to execute the program- related attacks, as the data recovery may be almost impossible or might prove costly. Industry insiders estimate the cost of such an attack as US$ 5.4 million, which does not include the costs of a class action-suit for the resulting damages.

Corporations need a comprehensive Global Legal Events strategy, adequate tools, insurance, compliance management, regular auditing, use of Contractual language, power control structures with corporate governance equal to the magnitude of the attacks. CEO’s wary of the threats and attacks are leaving no stone unturned to nullify such attacks and protect the sanctity of data. Realizing that a problem exists is winning half the battle, and now they are gearing for the other half!
