Data breaches are becoming increasingly common in today’s cyber landscape. When hackers set out to steal information, they are aiming for “maximum impact and maximum profit,” according to this continuously updated article from Upguard highlighting the 10 largest global data breaches that have occurred. Almost all of these breaches are financial institutions.
The unexpected costs that arise from a security breach could cripple any size business. As a business that provides payment services for our merchants, we believe it’s our responsibility to protect those transactions and the financial security of our clients and their customers.
