I was reading an article about budgeting for a data breach and it got me thinking.
A breach is only as damaging as the publicity and awareness around it. I just found out that the lock on my backdoor has been broken for the last year and a half. What a breach! Fortunately no one knew. Now I have it repaired, yet I still will not tell many that the incident happened in the first place. I would hate for people to start checking that backdoor or checking the front door or any other door to establish my risk tolerance.
