Data security has become an increasingly large concern for consumers as several government agencies and companies have become victims of breaches.
In May, the Internal Revenue Service said data for more than 100,000 taxpayers had been compromised. The data of approximately 280,000 AT&T customers also was exposed amid a series of breaches, the U.S. government said in April.

"It's been pretty spotty for people trying to protect their [financial information]," he said. "People are being attacked every time they turn around."
