Annual Data Breach Investigations Report Released
This year's report dives deep into the motives of cyber criminals and highlights methods that have never been seen before. According to the report:
o 92% of breaches were perpetrated by outsiders
o 76% of network intrusions exploited weak or stolen credentials (user names/passwords)
o 75% of breaches were driven by financial motives
o 66% of breaches took months or more to discover
Bryan Sartin, Director of the Investigative Response team at Verizon Enterprise Solutions, talks about the findings of the report and provides insight and recommendations on how to protect yourself online. He says one example of a common cybercrime tactic when it comes to breaches motivated by money, is capturing data from credentials typed into online bank accounts.
