With the several recent data breaches exposing consumer credit cards and personally identifiable information of thousands of victims at Citibank, a large group of companies had data breaches in 2011, including Sony, Epsilon, Google, the State of Texas, the New York Yankees, and Michael’s Stores. Several of those experiencing those data breaches have sent snail mail letters to their members warning them of the data loss and risk to their information. Some have received emailed warnings and the news has grown more worrying with each new case. The sophistication of the bad guys ranges from simplistic to highly technical exploits.
Small business owners are looking for solutions and many are being offered, below is one of them:
