Completing our tour of neglect is a report from data security vendor Opus and the Ponemon Institue about data security risks of sharing information with third parties. Attention grabbers: 56% of companies have experienced a third party data breach and 57% don’t have an inventory of third parties receiving their sensitive information. Oh, and the average breach costs $7.3 million to fix.
