Here is our round up of some of the news over the last week.

Cyber security is something you are going to hear more about this year and not just from us at Assuredata.  How can you ensure you have a solid enough case to get board sign off for this much needed investment? Our first article this week provide advice on just how to go about securing the right level of sign off.

Another data breach, this time for OXO International.  We are asking ourselves though why it took so long to identify the breach in the first place and why did it take so long to announce it?

Our next article looks at a data breach from 2014, one at Neiman Marcus. It just goes to show that it doesn’t matter how historical the data breach is, the financial impact will hit eventually.

We really enjoy these kinds of articles, always good to have a nice round up of what has happened since the GDPR came into force.

Another call for more training, this article outlines the rise in reported potential data incidents in schools since May last year.

See you next week.

There are of course thousands of other articles around cyber security and data privacy, why not get in touch if you would like us to comment on one you find particularly interesting.
