With the end of the year fast approaching, now is an apt time to reflect back on 2014 and look ahead to what's to come next year. For the data breach industry, 2014 was an explosive year with nearly half of all organizations suffering at least one data breach – up 10 percent from the year prior. This has resulted in companies taking positive initial steps to prepare for a breach, but much remains to be done.
To help businesses prepare for what is on the horizon, Experian Data Breach Resolution has developed six key predictions about how the data breach industry will evolve in 2015. These predictions are based on experience helping more than 3,000 companies manage breaches of all types in 2014 and conversations with leaders across the security landscape.
