CaliforniaChoice Takes Your Digital Security Seriously

Cyberattacks and information security breaches are on the rise in today’s high tech and data-driven environment. The list of examples goes on at length.

In July 2017, it was discovered that an Equifax data breach exposed the names, birth dates, Social Security Numbers, and credit card information for 147.9 million consumers. In September 2018, Marriot International had data stolen on approximately 500 million customers. More worrying, the Marriot breaches started in 2014 and were not discovered for four years.

Security magazine reports 2.8 billion consumer data records were exposed in 2018, costing U.S. organizations more than $654 billion. Health care was the hardest hit sector – with 48% of all breaches. Among the most high profile health care breaches are the 2015 Anthem, Inc. hack that affected nearly 80 million people and a breach at Premera, which impacted Blue Cross and Blue Shield members in 30 states.
