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

Pendrive write protection removing


Hey, the transcend pen drives usually have a small switch on the side of it, ie to turn the write protect on and off, usually a small lock symbol on it, the problem with unreadable files names etc, could be a corrupt partition, i would suggest formatting the drive as long as you aint got any important information on it,

All the best
