In today’s digital business environment, the need for enhanced cyber security is imperative. However, many companies continue to struggle with resilience, often experiencing breaches that lead to everything from compliance issues, to lost and stolen data and, ultimately, to brand damage and revenue loss. And though it is easy to read about these breaches, the causes and potential solutions are rarely identified.
It is for these reasons that Calian has created the Breach Report. Each month, we spotlight a particular type of company, the breach it has experienced, and what it could have done to mitigate risk against the specific type of cyber attack—all to create better insight for the general public and to educate people on proper cyber security best practices.
In this month’s report, we spotlight yet another very large breach; in this particular case, The European Central Bank (ECB) was hit with a cyber attack that involved attackers injecting malware into one of its websites to potentially steal the contact information of its newsletter subscribers.
