Data breaches are frightening. Just imagine purchasing something online and, a month later, receiving an email saying your credit card info might have been stolen. What’s even worse is that some data breaches go unreported. You only learn about it if somebody tries to use your personal info.

However, what we can do is learn how data gets compromised and minimise the frequency and impact of data breaches. That’s why we’ll cover the top most common causes behind a data breach.
