It’s no secret: Cybercriminals continue to be a threat to information that was once considered private. Whether the threat is from a group or within an organization, breaches are no longer a matter of “if”, but rather “when”.
According to the Trustwave® 2013 Global Security Report, here is what cybercriminals targeted most in 2013:
Customer Records (Payment Card Data, Personally Identifiable Information, E-Mail Addresses) – 96%
Confidential Information & Intellectual Property– 2%
Electronic Protected Health Information – 1%
