Since the discovery of the OpenSSL Heartbleed bug, organisations and individuals alike have shown great concern over their data and how best to protect it.

With the growing use of smartphones and BYOD in businesses, there is also an increased security risk if organisations do not properly employ a mobile device management (MDM) solution.

Verizon's recent 2014 Data Breach Investigations Report revealed that most cyber security attacks only use three attack patterns in order to gain access to data, with 92% of attacks in the last 10 years following the same 9 basic patterns. 

These patterns include malware, denial of service attacks, payment card skimmers and cyber espionage.

The following infographic from internet-based solutions provider Imprima highlights research into data loss, how it occurs and the impact that it can have on organisations.

The research, based on insider information from Imprima and data collected from resources such as the Kaspersky Security Bulletin 2012, Trend Micro and the Boston Computing Network, also details how organisations can avoid data loss.
