No one wants to believe that someone at their company would steal. While it’s unpleasant to think about, the truth is that there’s money to be made in selling sensitive data on the black market, and some of your employees may be tempted. This is why it’s so important for you to make sure your data centers are secure.

When millions of Target customers had their data stolen, that information quickly showed up on the black market. According to The New York Times, shortly after Target reported that their systems had been breached, a prominent company that tracks fraud saw a ten to twenty-fold increase in the number of high-value stolen cards on black market websites.

Sensitive data can go for anywhere between $20 to $100 per stolen record. That kind of money could make some people in your organization question their morals. Don’t give them the chance to make the wrong decision – keep your data centers secure with Digitus biometric security devices.
