globe2Online Trust Alliance has released results on their analysis of over 1000 data breaches for the past year.

As per study, more than 90% of the incidents could have been prevented with basic security measures. It was found out that while companies are making sure they get the latest online security software; the users forget to apply basic online security practices like creating better passwords. They also lack assessment of their security risks so most industries fail to get data about how vulnerable their systems are against the identified risks thus control and solution determination were also not established causing the plenty of account data breeches.
