List of Data Breaches and Cyber Attacks in June

This month marked the first occurrence where a cyber attack has forced a well-known company out of business. Code Spaces was forced to shut their doors earlier this month after a cyber attack deleted most of their data. Hopefully this will act as a wake-up call to boards that are yet to do anything about the growing cyber risk.
