    It's been a little more than three weeks since the revelation of the Global Payments data breach that led to the exposure of about 1.5 million credit card numbers. However, while that high-profile attack generated lots of media attention, some of the most dangerous hackers in the world aren't after your money; they want to steal the way your business makes money. "What we're actually getting now is that people try to steal intellectual property rights [IPR]," says Sarah Lloyd, a director at consulting firm Navigant with deep experience in attack and penetration testing, IT forensics, technical security architecture and information warfare. "The real threat is people trying to steal anything that's got IPR in it. They want to steal how you as a corporation make money."
