Data Breach and Job Loss

Data Breach and Job Loss


Nearly 70% of data breaches suffered by companies around the world have resulted in someone losing their job, according to a recent study. Cybersecurity has been a top priority for many businesses looking to protect themselves from a data breach. According to Norton, the United States is the prime target for cyber attacks, followed by India and then Japan. Despite this research, Canadian organizations are also recognizing their vulnerabilities and starting to take action.


A recent survey from Statistics Canada found more than one in five Canadian companies say they were hit by a cyber attack in 2017. These businesses went on to spend a combined total of $14 billion on cybersecurity to confront ongoing risks in the digital world.


The 21st century has been a tumultuous period for cybercrime. The infographic below illustrates the largest data breaches in recent history -- with social networking sites experiencing some of the most detrimental attacks.

The above infographic shows nearly 4 million records are becoming lost or stolen every day -- with cybercriminals becoming more and more sophisticated each year. This means organizations must stay extra vigilant when it comes to protecting their assets. The best way to do this is to hire the services of a professional security firm. Data encryption, regular risk assessments and a solid breach response are just some of the areas in which experts can help.



The Global Impact of Data Breaches and Job Loss


In total, the Kaspersky Lab study interviewed nearly 6,000 people from 29 different countries.  The study found that, globally, 31% of-of cybersecurity incidents led to employees being fired. Interestingly, China was found to be the country that fired the highest percentage of senior-IT personnel following a data breach. The study also found that the percentage of C-level employees losing their jobs following a data breach varied greatly depending on the country surveyed.


For instance, 32% of C-level managers and CEOs were fired following a data breach in North America-the region where C-level employees were most likely to be laid off: This is stark comparison to nations like Russia-where C-suite employees were blamed only 7% of the time, or in Japan, where only 5% of C-suite employees were blamed for the data breach.


North America and China Hit the Hardest


The study also found that North American companies were the most likely to be affected by a data breach, with 40% of North American respondents claiming to be victims of a data breach in the past year. In addition, enterprises were more likely to be victims of a data breach when compared to small or mid-sized companies, and were more likely to be impacted by multiple breaches. That is, the study found that 68% of enterprises that suffered from a data breach were also hit with at least another data breach within the past year.


However, when it came to paying fines and financial restitution after a data breach, China was the nation that had to pay out the most to its disgruntled customers. However, roughly 50% of North American companies were also required to pay fines and financial compensation due to a data breach, and the study also found that companies in China and North America had the most trouble attracting new clients after a data breach.
