Verizon 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report

The last year was quite interesting for security breaches and massive exposures. As if Wanna Cryptor wasn’t enough, then broke news of Equifax.

Each year Verizon shares an annual report of data breaches. It’s an extensive report (over 70 pages long), but there is so much good info… we thought we’d share a few snippets.

  • 81% of hacking-related breaches leveraged either stolen or weak passwords
  • 24% of all breaches were financial organizations
  • 51% of breaches included malware, 66% of which malware was installed via email attachments

The full report dives into each industry sector and also each type of attack. If you’re short on time, the Executive Summary is 6-pages full of great information. Access the full report for free using this link.

ITP’s security stance is a proactive one. We have recently added security training to our service offerings.
