Human error still the major cause of data breaches

More than half of all executives (53%) and nearly three in 10 Small Business Owners (28%) who suffered a breach, reveal that human error or accidental loss by an external vendor/source was the cause of the data breach, according to a Shred-it survey conducted by Ipsos.

The report found that nearly half of all executives (47%) and one in three SBOs (31%) say human error or accidental loss by an employee/insider was the cause.
