Verizon Business 2008 Data Breach Investigations Report – Part II
In Part II of this podcast series on the Verizon Business 2008 Data Breach Investigations Report, Bryan Sartin, director of investigative response for Verizon Business Security Solutions, summarizes key report findings and discusses actions enterprises can take to help prevent data breaches. Based on an analysis of hundreds of corporate data breaches, including three of the five largest ever reported, Verizon Business found that nine in 10 corporate data breaches could have been prevented had reasonable security measures been in place. The report also notes that 73 percent of breaches resulted from external sources versus 18 percent from insider threats. Sartin describes several basic actions including planning, implementation and monitoring that can reap big benefits when performed with continual diligence.
