Between April 2015 and March 2016, there were 2,315,931 reported ransomware attacks.
For 9 straight years now, Verizon has released the Data Breach Investigations Report to give cybersecurity professionals a detailed look into the threat landscape. The report is meant to help security teams keep up with increasingly sophisticated attackers.
As one half of the illusive 3.0 solution, Attacker View™ gives companies an opportunity to see their unique vulnerabilities to information security threats. This provides an advantage that most organizations have yet to benefit from in the cybersecurity context.
Cyber attackers only need one small crack in a security plan to invade and jeopardize an entire organization. As IBM and Ponemon Institute reported in their 2015 Cost of Data Breach Study: Global Analysis, this is becoming a costly problem for today’s businesses.
Attackers are finding their way around perimeter defenses and into corporate networks—and IT security professionals are taking anywhere from 158 to 256 days to detect breaches.
All of the daunting statistics about data breaches and cybersecurity failures that we’ve all been inundated with often point to the fact that sophisticated cyber attackers have figured out how to bypass common preventative measures.
