Data Breaches: Your Personal and Professional Identity at Risk [INFOGRAPHIC]
Posted on July 14th 2013
Each year, the amount of data that is stored online about our lives grows…
And so too does the damage done by increasingly savvy hacking tools leading to a breach of the safety measures a site may be using.
You likely still remember the trouble that hit the Department of Veterans Affairs, or T.J. Maxx Credit Cards, or the Sony Playstation network!
And that’s only the “big name” attacks and doesn’t include the much more recent LinkedIn hacking and others!
The majority of internet marketers are HIGHLY at risk because of how much data we bring online for the sake of building a business out here.
Just how much data gets leaked every year, though?
Check out this useful infographic from the idExperts team:
Many internet marketers fail to treat their business as a business and skimp on important things like this (often while throwing money weekly at new “shiny objects” that they will either never use or will be out of date before they even get started).
Be sure you treat your business as a business and have both a legal plan and an identity theft monitoring plan in place to protect you, your assets, and your business from inevitable data breaches such as these.
Take care of your business and do the smart things to avoid losing it all to the bad guys!
