Identity theft has become a major concern for Charlotte businesses, and an office security breach is no laughing matter. According to a 2016 report from the Identity Theft Research Center, more than 470 office security breaches have been reported between January 1st and June 14th, affecting the sensitive private records of over 12 million people in the United States alone. Once an identity thief has access to someone’s private information, they will be able to open credit card accounts, buy a car or home using their name or even drain the victim’s checking and savings accounts of every cent they have.
What Is an Office Security Breach?
An office security breach is when someone illegally gains access to a corporate database or computer network, usually to steal usernames and passwords, personal data on customers, employees and/or business contacts or other highly sensitive information. As an example, the social networking site LinkedIn became the victim of a security breach that affected 6.46 million users.
