Data Breaches: The Risks Keep Coming

Small CPA Firms fight against data breachesMany companies claim that data breaches are the result of highly technical and sophisticated efforts. The FBI reports that 90% of these are avoidable if widely accepted best practices and security controls are applied. In recent years, micro-targeting of higher net worth individuals and companies has increased significantly. Hackers have used social engineering and malicious tactics such as forged email, malicious advertising and ransom extortion from companies to regain access to their own data. As companies record more claims, the risks and exposures keep coming.
