Still somewhat quaintly referred to as ‘hacking,’ these threats are now foremost in corporate strategic thinking… This paper seeks to identify vulnerabilities for corporate data loss and finds that data in transit across the public Internet and via mobile devices are the main mediums for data interceptions.
