The nature of a targeted cyber attack changes. Hackers now have the ability to collect data over longer periods of time, which means hackers can gather as much information as possible in just one go. A data breaches is different than a target cyber attack. A data breach can happen by simply misplacing a laptop. Other data breaches have occur through intentional leaks and/or angry employees.
What might be more alarming is cyber threats through social media outlets. Social network sites, such as, Facebook and Twitter can leak important company information. Social media sites can unintentionally or intentionally leak information and important company data. Online social sites makes it easy to collect corporate networks and find posted confidential or private information.
Smartphone can also be a security breach. Smartphones are almost required in today’s workplace. Some employees are given work phone, however some employees use personal phones.

Downloading corporate information to an individuals personal phone gives IT administrators almost no control over security.
