You are responsible for PII theft

Data privacy legislation, such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), have highlighted the importance of protecting customer data and PII from theft with large fines for non-compliance and data leakage. 

Language within these compliance laws goes so far as to make it clear that organizations are responsible for all PII loss, even in the cases of malicious attacks, if they have not put adequate and demonstratable measures in place to protect such data.

What is classed as PII? 

Personally identifiable information (PII) is any data which can be used to identify specific individuals. This information could include financial data, such as payment card details, social security numbers, email addresses and phone numbers, but can also include IP addresses, login IDs, geolocation, biometric

Preventing PII theft

With the average website being a complex myriad of first-, third- and even fourth- and fifth-party content, the attack surface for cybercriminals is enormous. And while most organizations invest significant resources in protecting their origin, where the website is viewed, the browser, is usually overlooked.
