Vigilance is required to minimise risk of IT security breaches - ABA

Vigilance is required to minimise risk of IT security breaches.

“Everyone is vulnerable,” said Jeff Birnbach, partner and managing director of Sylint Group Inc., a cyber security firm based in Sarasota, Florida. 

Birnbach, along with John Stephens and Nora Wetzell, attorneys with Sedgewick LLC, and Michelle Worrall Tilton of Media Risk Consultants, LLC, examined data breaches from a variety of perspectives during the program, “Dealing with Data Breach: Not ‘If” but ‘When?’”

Data breaches are frequent and costly. Cyber attacks costs corporations more than $315 billion over a 12-month period, according to a 2015 Grant Thornton report.
