Type:  White Paper

2013 was a challenging year for major companies fighting high-profile security breaches. Apple, Twitter, Facebook, Microsoft, Tumblr, Burger King, Jeep, Evernote and The New York Times are just a few of the big-name organizations that had to combat security problems.

  • Twitter’s systems were compromised and 250,000 user accounts exposed.
  • Apple, Facebook and Twitter were victims of a “watering hole attack” causing malware to be downloaded on to the website visitors’ computers.
  • After suffering a data breach, Evernote had to issue a service-wide password reset.
