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. Within this free report, readers are provided incident analysis universally and by industry, detailed insights, and tips to mitigate cyber security threats. For data professionals, the data breach report is one of those “must at least skim” resources to understand the changing nature of threats that you are most likely to face to help you prepare and prevent them.
