The City of Tucson recently disclosed a data breach that occurred on May 29th, 2022. Over 123K people were affected – primarily city employees and those who do business with the city. The compromised data includes names, social security numbers, and more. The good news: there is no indication that the data is being used maliciously. Still, the city has alerted affected individuals and is providing 12 months of credit monitoring services. Close-to-home breaches remind usto protect our organizations’ data!
Protecting Employee, Customer, and Partner Data
|It’s easy to forget how sensitive data can be. You’re expected (and sometimes required) to protect data about employees, customers, vendors and more. Here’s how to reduce your risk of a breach: |
1. Segment Data to Limit Breach’s Scope – Keep data separated and utilize Least Privileged Access so successful breaches can be contained.
2. Keep your Firewall up to date – Make sure your Next Generation Firewall has an active IDS/IPS System to keep intruders out.
3. Educate Employees – The fact is, most breaches are the result of human error. Education is the best defense. Make sure employees recognize phishing, social engineering, and other common attacks.
