5 facts about data security

  • 74% of the businesses surveyed were affected by cyber attacks
  • 62% had lost at least one mobile device in the last 12 months and 100% admitted they had no password on their phones
  • Less than 30% of the devices lost had a way to wipe these lost devices clean in order for private information to be secure

What I learned?

I learned that data security is more important that it sounds. The statistics I found were very interesting and a lot more than i thought they would be. I also learned that data security goes a lot longer than you think. If you get caught trying to steal something just simple, agents take it very seriously and can get you in a lot of trouble. I read an article about somebody stealing a mechanical pencil, and they ended up 30 days in jail and 60 days probation.
