Brilliant Solution to Hacking Attempts

As we’re all well aware, hacking continues to be a huge issues for companies around the globe….no matter how large or how small. Everyone from Adobe to Target has been subject of some sort of security or data breach.

In this article, Ari Juels and Thomas Ristenpart discuss their new technique for thwarting hackers.

Instead of simply trying to make your data secure, make some of it totally insecure. Basically, have a fake data source that is available to hackers fairly easily. Hackers will find this fake data and focus on that…not even realizing the data is actually fake. By the time they realize it is fake, you’ll have had a chance to identify them and their method/point of entry.

This could save companies billions…not only in lost data but also in reputation.
