    Click through for five best practices organizations should consider to help mitigate data breaches and avoid the costly headaches associated with them, as identified by Thycotic.

In the wake of eBay's recent data breach, many consumers and security professionals have been extremely vocal in their protest of the company's response to the situation; some are calling it one of the worst corporate crisis responses they've ever seen. eBay's stock price in the days after the breach took a major hit, dipping to the lowest since December 2013. When considering the costs of a data breach, damage to company systems, loss of intellectual property, remediation and forensic costs are usually what come to mind. Some organizations also factor in the cost associated with reputation damage, which may harm revenue, as well as industry fines or possible prosecution.
