Happy Holidays from Spirion – your 2020 data protection gift guide

Goodbye 2020, hello 2021! This year, we’ve prepared a data protection gift guide as you make your way through the holiday season. Wishing you a successful 2021 ahead. Season’s greetings from the entire team at Spirion!

For the person in your life who has everything

A personal submarine. Did you know that, in 2020, the average cost to remediate a data breach after the fact was $3.84 million? With that kind of money, you could buy your significant other their own personal submarine.

For the sports fan in your life

Here at Spirion, we love our sports and know that if you had access to the global cybersecurity spend in 2020 – estimated at $152 Billion – you could purchase the sports fan in your life every NFL team and every MLB team and still have enough money left over to purchase the Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning. (Did we mention that Spirion HQ is in St Petersburg? Go Bolts!)
