Data security is vital to a company’s future and reputation. Data loss can turn businesses upside down in a heartbeat. So it is pretty concerning when we read that “most federal agencies have no way of effectively detecting when data is stolen”. While this is concerning, it is also no surprise when we hear that government agencies are one of the largest targets for cyber threats.

“The report says there were more than 30,000 cyber attacks on the federal government in 2016 that resulted in lost information and compromised systems, but in 38 percent of those attacks (nearly 12,000 of the incidents), the government had no idea where the attacks came from or how they got into the systems.”
