The new Verizon 2015 Data Breach Investigations Report has been published.

It is interesting to note … 

The year 2014 saw the term “data breach” become part of the broader public vernacular, with The New York Times devoting more than 700 articles related to data breaches, versus fewer than 125 the previous year.

And there are undoubtedly more to come. Consider one of the scariest charts in the report:

[The chart] contrasts how often attackers are able to compromise a victim in days or less (orange line) with how often defenders detect compromises within that same time frame (teal line). Unfortunately, the proportion of breaches discovered within days still falls well below that of time to compromise. Even worse, the two lines are diverging over the last decade, indicating a growing “detection deficit” between attackers and defenders.”

Enjoy the read! We in the information security industry have a lot of work to do.
