How to Protect Your Company from Hackers and Internal Threats  December 8, 2009 – 08:55 am
(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Recently, hackers gained access to Yahoo’s databases, exposing over 450, 000 usernames and passwords to Yahoo, Gmail, AOL, Hotmail, Comcast, MSN, SBC Global, Verizon, BellSouth and Live.com accounts. This privacy breach comes on the heels of a breach of over 6.5 million LinkedIn user passwords. With these embarrassing security breaches, and the widespread revelation of their inadequate information security practices, Yahoo and LinkedIn were added to the rapidly growing list of large companies who have suffered massive data breaches in recent years.

While breaches at large companies like Yahoo and LinkedIn make the headlines, small businesses are equally at risk, and must take appropriate measures to keep their information safe. Aaron Messing, an information privacy lawyer with OlenderFeldman LLP, notes that most businesses networks are accessible from any computer in the world and, therefore, potentially vulnerable to threats from individuals who do not require physical access to it. In fact, a recent report by Verizon found that nearly three-quarters of breaches in the last year involved small businesses. In fact, small business owners may be the most vulnerable to data breaches, as they are able to devote the least amount of resources to information security and privacy measures. Studies have found that the average cost of small business breaches is $194 per record breached, a figure that includes various expenses such as detecting and reporting the breach, notifying and assisting affected customers, and reimbursing customers for actual losses. Notably, these expenses did not include the cost of potential lawsuits, public embarrassment, and loss of customer goodwill, which are common consequences of weak information security and poorly managed data breaches. For a large business, a data breach might be painful. For a small business, it can be a death sentence.

Nice turn of events

Anyone with access to a cell phone with a camera can load images to the internet BEFORE governments can put a lid on it...what on earth is that poor thing?
They are reporting it because they have to.
That was not a fetus. Too bad they don't show a reference point to see how big it is. It seemed large to me, but maybe someone with the know-how to truly gauge how big it was, from the picture they were able to extract, could come forward with their findings. Was it wet? Did it come from the water?
I think I would have run...imagine E.T. coming at you...I wouldn't have stuck around to see if it shakes my hand or bites it.
