First Half Of 2013 Riddled With Password Breaches
The biggest data breaches in the first half of 2013 demonstrate that despite all the security technologies in place, attackers will find a way to penetrate defenses and access systems containing sensitive data.

Attackers take the easiest pathway into a corporate network to steal data and get out. Breaches are often carried out through a phishing email containing a link to an attack website or a malicious file that exploits a vulnerability on the end user's system. From password and third-party breaches to insider threats and nation-state driven attacks, here's a look at some of the biggest data breaches so far this year, showing that no organization is immune.
