Biggest Cybersecurity Stats of 2017

Some of the most valuable data you have is online, and it’s been there for a while.

You might think it’s secure because you’ve protected it with a password, but in this day in age, there aren’t many password-protected pieces of data online that even an amateur hacker can’t access.

The solution: keep what’s important to you safe from harm by integrating identity verification and vendor risk management security solutions. It might sounds like taking this step is an overreaction, but thousands of companies throughout the world disagree.
