Digital Decoys - No More Playing Defense!

My guess is that you've been involved in a "data breach" at least once in the past several years. In the first half of 2020 alone there has been over 540 digital security snafus leading to critical personal information being hijacked. For all of 2019, more than 1500 breaches were recorded with 165 million records being exposed to the hacker.

In April 2020, Bank of America reported that it experienced a breach as information from the PPP (paycheck protection program) was being uploaded to a SBA platform for testing. This year Marriott, MGM, Twitter and Zoom all experienced hackers. So far in 2020 some 16 billion records have been compromised with criminal intent.

As a result, corporations are being proactive setting up digital decoys to lure hackers away from the critical data and to learn their behavior and discern their malware.


Success in all your efforts,

John
