MILWAUKEE, Wis., July 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — PKWARE, the leading provider of Smart Encryption software and solutions, announced it anticipates three significant, new information security breaches through 2015:
“Based on our own intelligence gathering and experience working to protect data security around the world, we believe hacks, breaches and attacks will continue to unfold at unprecedented levels in the coming months, harming businesses and consumers alike,” says V. Miller Newton, PKWARE CEO and President. “Elections, intellectual property and wearables offer porous staging grounds for cyberattacks and we believe these three areas are particularly ripe for exploitation through 2015.”
Today’s predictions from PKWARE follow accurate predictions from the company’s initial 2015 breach forecast, which was given in January of this year and was lionized in two outlets, Business Insider and episode three of its online security show, “Thieves, Snoops and Idiots.” In those forums, and in national press interviews, PKWARE correctly anticipated the following attacks:
“Though the U.S and British governments are seeking to weaken encryption generally, businesses and consumers must join together to protect and enhance the use of encryption everywhere,” says Matt Little, PKWARE’s VP of Product Development and a frequent media resource on data security. “To stop cybercriminals and nullify the value from breaches, we must secure the data itself so that business and communications can continue safely.”
