Reviewing The 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report

Jen Underwood picks out some interesting tidbits from the Verizon 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report:

Each year Verizon, in conjunction with the VERIS Community Database initiative, releases the annual data breach investigations report. This year’s report is based on analysis of 42,068 security incidents, including 1,935 confirmed data breaches.
