Learning and awareness on information security management is an on-going process since types of threats keep evolving. Many corporates and organizations still assume that information breached will not bring any severe damage. This perception is wrong. Like in 2010, over 400 incidents were reported in US, resulted 26 million records for a cost to US businesses of over $5.3 billion . Now breaching or compromising crucial information is all about economic gain in the black market. For instance, a stolen sensitive government data could be reuse and sold in the black market with price fetch up to 500 Euros
