By: Parker Rains, The Tennessean. With 30,000 companies hacked every day, it’s no wonder cyber crime is ranked one of the top five risks facing businesses this year, according to the 2015 Allianz Risk Barometer report. It’s also the top emerging risk for the next five years.
It seems as if cybersecurity is in the news constantly these days. Everyone talks about the threats from state actors looking for political or commercial advantage, organized criminal groups looking for theft or extortion opportunities and monetizable information, even random individuals with an ax to grind who don’t like your business for some reason.
