The Costs For Information Leakages

It is a very sad thing that nowadays there is so little useless information.” Oscar Wild

Year 2014 was marked as the year of Big Data breaches for such world-famous Companies as PF Change’s, eBay, and the University of Maryland. Though nowadays it is possible to monitor and hack almost all kinds of confidential information, consumers should always be ready to foot the bill for data leakages.

It is not surprising that cyber-attacks and other means of data uncovering lead to great financial losses and problems. Very often, such attacks jeopardize victims’ careers and life achievements by making victims end up paying the portion of the costs for a data breach. It should be mentioned that this refers to both cases of whether the confidential data was compromised or not during the information leakage.
