As we return to our routines at the outset of the new year, it’s a good time to reflect on the past year in enterprise security, to see if we’ve learned anything and to take a look at what lies ahead. The last 12 months saw a continued wave of data breaches, with both the nature of incidents and motivation of cyber-criminals continuing to evolve. Nearly half of organizations reported having dealt with a data breach involving the loss or theft of more than 1,000 records containing sensitive or confidential information in the past two years. While more companies have taken the basic step of creating a data breach response plan, they need to examine emerging threats and update their plans accordingly. Experian’s Data Breach Industry Forecast report, now in its third year, explores expected new trends and evaluates how previous the information service provider’s predictions panned out. In this slide show, eWEEK examines findings from the report, which outlines several predictions for 2016.
