Data and security breaches Businesses store vast amounts of information. A security breach occurs when an intruder, employee or outsider gets past an organization's security measures and policies to access the data. This sort of security breach could compromise the data and harm people. There are various state laws that require companies to notify people who could be affected by security breaches.

Physical Security Breach One form of breach is a physical security breach, wherein the intruder steals physical data, such as files or equipment that contains the data. Intruders could steal computers, particularly laptops, for this purpose. Businesses should monitor access to their property to cut down on such incidents and require employees to lock away their laptops when not in use. b> Electronic Security Breach b> Another form of breach is an electronic security breach, wherein the intruder gets into a business' systems to access sensitive data. The intruder gains such access by taking advantage of any weaknesses in the systems, such as inadequate firewall protection. This could also happen if the organization does not have adequate password protection for sensitive data. This sort of security breach is one reason businesses should perform constant security updates. b> Data Capture Security Breach b> Data capture, or skimming, is a practice whereby the intruder captures and records the data on a magnetic card stripe, such as on a credit card. This form of security breach helps the intruder produce copies of credit and debit cards. The intruder could either be an employee of a merchant who handles the customer's card, or it could be an external intruder. An external intruder could attach a device to card readers or ATM machines to skim information. b> Business Response b> Businesses should be wary of security breaches. Best practices for businesses to follow include having a policy in place to deal with any incidents of security breaches. They should identify what information has been compromised and decide who are the appropriate regulatory authorities to which they should report. Affected customers should also be notified. b> Potential Threats b> Start by identifying potential threats and vulnerabilities in your organization. Employees, temps or newly fired workers who have access to data represent one such threat. Hackers trying to crack your security are another. If your business or customer data passes into the hands of third parties -- vendors, business partners or bankers, for instance -- those parties may prove to be another weak spot. Review your security systems for any obvious flaws; Risk Analytics rates incorrectly configured firewalls as one of the top security threats. b> Calculating Risk b> Once you have a list of potential threats, document which ones represent serious risks. A low-level employee who doesn't have computer access poses less of a risk than an IT staffer with a grudge. If your company doesn't have data-handling procedures to prevent accidentally revealing customer data, that's another serious risk. When calculating the level of risk, consider all the potential negative effects, such as the loss of customers, the loss of money, having to shut down your network temporarily and the blow to your company's image. Security b> Once you document the breach risks, shore up your security to prevent them. Start with the most potentially catastrophic breaches. Preventing breaches requires more than encryption and other technical fixes: Consider the human side of security, such as employees who use easily hackable passwords or don't take security seriously. Think about the security of your business partners' operation as well as your own. If you encrypt key data and carefully regulate access, you still have a problem if your partners don't follow equally strict policies. b> Rethinking b> Never assume that, once you've documented your breach risks, you can rest easy. The information technology landscape changes constantly, creating new vulnerabilities. Mobile-payment technologies that allow shoppers to make credit and debit purchases with smartphones, for instance, are a new field. The field is growing steadily, but it lacks any common security standard. The apps are easy to develop, but developers do not always make security a priority. Review the risks created by new technology if you want to stay on top of new breach dangers. Hope this helps

Is Really A Data Breach More Prone To Originate Inside My Business Or Outside It?

more likely inside the business
can be from malicious intent of an employee
failing of the security of the programs ( passwords etc)
possible cookie attachment or tracking virus that came in on an e-mail, web site to an employee or that was opened unintentionally
Upgrade the anti virus to a high quality business program ( not home security)
get in IT security specialists to find the leak or the employee responsible
if you use wifi then put in place security that encodes any wi fi trans actions as any body with a receiver can within 100 meters ( 100 yards ) or driving past can hack your wifi transmissions
again get in IT security professionals to help you close up the gaps in the systems you use

2002 Buick rendezvous why does it act as if water were evaporating inside the engine add water and then after warm up there's no sign of water in the engine?

The fact is, it's going somewhere. If there is no leak on the floor, then there is only one answer really. Sadly, you have a breach in your head gasket. The water is either getting thriugh the breach into the sump (Check the level of your oil and check the underside of the oil filler cap to see if there is a nasty grey/brown emulsion buildup caused by hot leaking water mixing with hot oil. Alternatively, the breach is between a waterway and a compression chamber, in which case, the vehicle will probably berunning unevenly and there will be more whiteness to the exhaust than you would expect (Steam mixin with exhaust gasses). Either way, if there is no water on the floor, this is almost certainly a head gasket breach. You need to get it seen to as soon as possible. What may be a head gasket swap now (expensive enough as it is) could become a warped or cracked head if not looked at quickly

Hi im having trouble most time logging into online banking it sometimes ask me a security question .very frustrating

That's called two-factor authentication and it is a double layer of security so that ne'er-do-wells have a harder time accessing your bank account. Most online banking sites have gone to this due to the increase of security breaches of personal data.

SCAM! Does it make sense to you that the IRS would call you? They don't call anybody. The IRS would know what your return looks like, and 2009 is a closed year - meaning that the statute of limitations has expired for this one anyway. DO NOT RESPOND TO THE REQUEST.

I want to know the location and area of the cell number

Sorry, FixYa cannot provide information of this kind. We have absolutely no access to such data, and even if we did it would breach FixYa policy as it's potentially a serious breach of privacy.

Try typing the number into a search engine or contact your telephone company.

Whose cell number is this? what is the exact location of this number

FixYa cannot supply you with the information you're requesting. We have no access to such data, and if we did the supply of it would be in breach of FixYa policy.

Note that NOBODY can provide an exact location for any cellphone. Miltary and state security may have the means to establish a best guess, but it's still not an exact process.

Do home copy machines like Epson inkjet models have hard drives that could possibly create a security breach if they were stolen?

No inkjet based machines past or present contain hard drives. They present no storage security risks. The only possible risk would be access to the machine via your network from an outside source. The only data that could be accessed would be fax numbers, names etc.
This would require a major security breach of your network however, and is highly unlikely.
