Topic Background:

Sony, Google, Wells Fargo Bank, AOL, the US Defense Department are only a small fraction of the thousands of organizations worldwide whose sensitive secrets have been stolen or exposed by cyber-criminals.Not to mention the countless number of retail merchants whose customer credit and debit card data has been stolen in order to manufacturer counterfeit cards, initiate fraudulent online purchase or perpetuate the vast and dangerous underground economy in stolen personal information.

These and other cyber-attacks have led governmental entities to establish a patchwork of laws requiring custodians of personal information doing business in their locality to provide safeguards and assurance that PII is secure. Yet, cybercriminals continue to flourish – forcing organizations like yours to scramble to enhance security measures that will—hopefully—protect against these costly assaults.
