The Year Of The Data Breach?
With spring’s arrival comes the annual release of the Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, an overview of cyber security issues during the preceding year. Contained within the study are facts and figures related to industries that utilize the internet (basically all of them at this point) and how the environment has evolved around their efforts.
While the full document runs nearly seventy pages, there are a few highlights that stand out to the casual observer. Maintaining it’s ranking from last year, human error once again tops the list of causes for data breaches as many would-be attackers realize that people are inherently fallible:
In addition to this finding, the study also showed that the overall proportion of businesses facing an attacked increased to the point where five out of every six organizations saw some sort of security threat in 2014. With financial losses totaling $400 million, this new form of attack is big business for malicious attackers and criminals around the world.
