The Hill reported that HSBC bank confirmed it experienced a data breach, and the perpetrators may have access to sensitive information including account numbers, balances and transaction histories as well as users' names, addresses, and dates of birth. Although the bank stated that less than one percent of its US customers have been affected by the breach, the bank is another example of how even the most seemingly secure businesses can fall victim to data breaches.

 The consequences of bank security are more pertinent than ever, today, enterprises have never been more at risk of falling victim to criminal fraud.
