Nowadays, everything is going digital. The photographs we once stored in photo albums are generally no longer printed; they’re stored in online albums. And few people anymore use physical paper planners to keep track of their lives; instead, daily reminders and appointments are stored in digital calendars.
Meanwhile, companies across multiple industries are storing all of their files and data digitally. From financial records to personnel files, digital networks are storing companies’ internal data. The data companies collect from customers is often stored this way, as well.
Sounds good so far — except for the fact that with so many things going digital, we are more and more susceptible to security breaches.
