Hashkey’s Information Security Division now plays a crucial role in both attack prevention and responding to clients’ increasing need to protect their data, whether on or offline. Although data breaches are mostly associated with cyber attacks, studies show that in about 80% of cases, human error and carelessness are to blame for extremely damaging data breaches that have severely harmed businesses, thereby causing everything from loss of credibility, loss of funds or the definitive closing of the business.

Human Security Breaches
Eventhough it’s mostly the big cybersecurity data breaches that make the headlines, the truth is that it’s human negligence or malice that result in the biggest and most harmful data breaches. Here are a few examples of the small occurrences that have already lead thousands of businesses to disastrous data breaches:
- Loss and / or theft of paperwork
- Data sent to the wrong recipients
- Use of insecure webpages
- Loss or theft of unencrypted devices
- Unsafe passwords and / or storing of passwords
- Carelessness with devices that give company access, including ID badges
