Verizon’s 2015 Data Breach Investigations Report

Verizon’s Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) is always a great resource — not only does it have the sort of broad overview that helps explain risk and threats, but digs into some of the metrics without taking a hairpin turn into absurdity and hand-wringing that so often dominates this part of the industry.

Whenever I’m asked to give a talk, I refer to the DBIR because the data is good, the information is digestible, and it always manages to steer me into topics that are relevant and realistic rather than lurching off into hypotheticals and Doom and Glooming.
