In the wake of continued high-profile data breaches, safeguarding intellectual property, financial records, and consumers’ personal information has become more critical than ever. Although news headlines tend to highlight wide-scale attacks against large organizations—think J.P. Morgan Chase, Target, and Anthem—most attacks aren’t on such a grand scale.
