QOTD on the Shadow IT Trend

CISOs, take note. Shadow IT is a trend that is way beyond building momentum. It’s more like a silent bullet train tearing through the IT landscape unnoticed and with little to no regard for corporate security.

QOTD - Wade Baker on VZ DBIR 2014

After analyzing 10 years of data, we realize most organizations cannot keep up with cybercrime – and the bad guys are winning.
But by applying big data analytics to security risk management, we can begin to bend the curve and combat cybercrime more effectively and strategically.
Organizations need to realize no one is immune from a data breach. Compounding this issue is the fact that it is taking longer to identify compromises within an organization – often weeks or months, while penetrating an organization can take minutes or hours.
-- Wade Baker, principal author of the Data Breach Investigations Report series
