In today's business community, data breaches are an epidemic. They infect organizations of all sizes, in every nook and cranny of the world. Globally, cyber-crime damages are expected to double by 2021, totaling $6 trillion.
The perpetrators of these attacks are generally after individuals' personal data such as names, birthdates, and financial or medical information. They may build a Trojan horse that installs malware when a user clicks a seemingly innocuous email attachment, or they may set loose a virus or worm that propagates itself from system to system. Once a network is infected, the malware may seek out sensitive information, or it may record user keystrokes needed to access the desired data.
