Customer data security is a priority
Hi Curtis, I believe Cyber criminals will want to increase their malicious activity of using malicious code in increasingly cunning ways. Such ransomware variants have been found to use an innovative system to increase infection: the software turns victims into attackers by offering pyramid-mode discounts. I think keeping customer data secure is more important in 2019 whenever a data breach occur customer has to face the wrath, I read an article on it as well https://blog.loginradius.com/2018/12/put-customer-data-security-first-avoid-breaches-like-marriotts/ hope businesses can avoid such mishap after opting for a reliable cloud security service.
