Gear your HR Department to battle Data Breach


The cost of a data breach can be devastating for any organisation, big or small.  Are you doing enough to keep sensitive data leak at bay? HR Departments can now be empowered with an enterprise messaging platform that can help streamline work in a secure and encrypt environment.



Data breach incidents are costing UK businesses between £1.5 million and £3m on average through business disruption, lost sales and damage to reputation, as per a joint UK government and PwC report. Organisations such as eBay, Target and Home Depot among many others have faced the brunt of data breach resulting in members of the C-suite losing their jobs.

With a rise in the number of smartphones and tablets, and a decrease in sales of PCs, attacks on mobile devices are growing by the day. A recent Gartner report confirms that by 2017, the focus of endpoint breaches will shift to tablets and smartphones. In fact, another study found that about 74 percent, of companies surveyed have experienced a data breach that resulted from a mobile security issue.





Here’s what companies end up paying for a data breach:

  • The average clean up cost of an enterprise mobile data breach is £167,000
  • The average consolidated total cost of a data breach is $3.8 million representing a 23% increase since 2013
  • The average cost per lost or stolen record can be as high as $161.
  • Companies who suffered a breach reported that remedying the damage caused by these breaches had cost their companies between £25,000 to £100,000 over the last 12 months. A further 10 per cent reported remediation expenses of more than £500,000.
