The financial regulator for the state of New York announced on Monday a plan to increase focus on cybersecurity over the next year. Benjamin Lawsky, superintendent of New York state's Department of Financial Services, said that "it is impossible to take it seriously enough."
It's no secret that breaches impact lots of people. But it may be shocking to learn just how many. Just ask people in the state of New York, a third of whom fell victim to cyberattacks in the past year. Attacks on businesses were so rampant that the government commissioned a report.
