Examples of Potential Data Breaches or Hacks

Example 1 – Stolen Laptop

Not all data breaches or hacks happen over the internet. Picture a situation where an employee is travelling with a company laptop and it is stolen from their vehicle. The laptop contained private information for your company’s clients. Their information is leaked or hacked into and your firm now has to announce the breach publicly. Those clients file lawsuits against your firm for failure to prevent unauthorized access to their information. That is going to cost you.

Example 2 – Deceptive Email

An employee receives an email to their work email address. They open the email without taking the proper precautions and open the link. Turns out the email was actually malware and they have just allowed the hacker to gain access to the company’s network. The hacker has access to confidential information including; passwords, credit card numbers, and customer information. You’re in trouble.

Example 3 – Infected File

You receive a document saying you need to upgrade your current software. A file is provided for you to download to get the new software. You download the file not knowing it is a virus. The virus stops your system from functioning and you lose out on revenue and operations until your system is restored.
