Verizon published last week the 12th edition of its Data Breach Investigation Report (DBIR) based on real-world data from 41,686 confirmed security incidents and 2,013 data breaches spanning 86 countries worldwide. “Every one of the incidents in this report is either where data has been stolen, or there was a quantified cyber incident,” told me in an exclusive interview at the Netevents IT Spotlight conference Ray Ottey who runs Verizon’s security business across the UK, Ireland, and the Nordics. “So it’s just facts, things that have happened. So we look at the analysis of that, how did they get in, what assets did they steal, how long did it take or how many steps do they take. And we break it down by industry as well including finance, healthcare, manufacturing or retail.”
