  • The IT department of a retail company implements email account volume limits in attempt to control growing data proliferation. In response, employees in the data analytics department begin using off-system cloud storage options to store their data. The cloud storage company announces that there has been a data breach exposing data stored in their cloud to hackers. Some of the company’s stored information was included in the breach, including names, addresses and credit card information of customers. The massive breach severely damages the company’s reputation among customers and shareholders and requires considerable resources to resolve.
