What a year it has been. Nothing delineates things more than reviewing the annual Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR), which was published earlier this month. We wrote about last year’s DBIR at this time of year. To refresh your memory, it’s based on Verizon’s assessment of breach data coming from a variety of sources called VERIS.
This year, there are links to its open source collection (if you want to do your own analysis), or a link to file your own (and anonymous) report in the interests of total transparency. Verizon’s team analyzed more than 29,000 incidents and 5,000 actual breaches.
