Data breaches make the news a lot because they happen a lot and they can be very expensive to clean up. More than half- 63%- of all data breaches can be traced back to third party vendors. The Target data breach in 2015, which cost over $39 million, was traced back to malware on printers. Regardless of the source, Target footed the bill. The onus is on business owners to clean up data breaches no matter the source, so ensuring you use a reputable third party vendor is crucial.
