This is the true story of a man who risked everything to expose the high-profile data breach that affected the security of as many as 110 million people.
Brian Krebs discovered the astronomical holiday data breach of more than 100 million Target customers through sources in the hacker underworld and was the first to warn the corporation. The aftermath of his choice has lead to Krebs being hacked repeatedly by cyber criminals, while Target attempts to pick up the pieces of what is left of their data security plan.
The real question is would you see a movie about it? Hollywood sure thinks you would.
In fact, Sony Pictures Entertainment has bought the rights to a New York Times article about Brian Krebs wants to turn the Target data breach debacle into a cyber thriller.
A lot has be taken from the “breach heard ’round the world.” Corporations realize they can never be too secure with their sensitive data. Fortune 500 companies assign on average 3.5 devices per employee and 51% of organizations have had data loss due to insecure devices alone.
Don’t let employee devices be another outlet for company turmoil.

Globally, the cost of a data breach averaged $136 per compromised record, up from $130 the previous year, according to a data protection news source. Along with the millions of exposed records comes loss of client trust and damaged public reputation, all due to lack of proper data erasure and security.
Don’t be the next Target.
