Breach of security is a common topic in the news today, especially when it involves compromising the safety of consumers’ private information. Many consumers became more aware of the significant effects of data breaches earlier this year when the Facebook/Cambridge Analytica scandal broke out; although, we have seen many large data breaches in the past.

Hackers are a potential threat to any organization, so it is important to increase online security measures.
