Top Five Industries Impacted by Data Encryption Challenges in 2014

  • Top Five Industries Impacted by Data Encryption Challenges in 2014-

    Government

    It comes as no surprise that the U.S. federal government is extremely vulnerable to a data breach. To date, the industry remains one of the most frequently hacked verticals in the enterprise market, which impacts not only government officials but the nation’s school systems and the U.S. military. In fact, the U.S. federal and state governments have lost more than 94 million data records in the past four years alone, according to a recent report from Rapid7. To make matters worse, the ripple effect from the notorious leaks of ex-CIA employee and NSA contractor Edward Snowden is expected to make 2014 one of the worst years ever for government data breaches. Encryption is no longer just essential for confidential, policy information but for our national security as well.

Encryption is no longer just essential for confidential, policy information but for our national security as well.

According to Big Data security experts Gazzang, 2014 will be the year of data security. Between the Edward Snowden NSA leak and the hundreds of other data breaches that occurred in 2013, companies and consumers alike are beginning to take responsibility for their data and implementing encryption policies and solutions to prevent these kinds of breaches from occurring.

Though this is a step in the right direction, some of the most destructive and dangerous industries for a data breach to occur in are the ones who are expected to face the most challenges with data encryption in 2014. Disk encryption provider WinMagic reveals the top five industries that will experience the most data encryption challenges in 2014 and why the most dangerous industries remain the most vulnerable.
