The DBIR team examined more than 914,000 incidents and nearly 235,000 data breaches.
Cybercriminals are finding exploitable attack surfaces in both humans and technology platforms. That’s according to the latest Verizon Data Breach Investigation Report.
The Data Breach Investigation Report (DBIR) found that system intrusion is rising in frequency as a cyberattack pattern. The DBIR defines system intrusion as “complex attacks that leverage malware and/or hacking to achieve their objectives including deploying ransomware.” Partner and software updates comprised the most common attack vector for system intrusion, according to Verizon.
At the same time, socially engineered attacks remain immensely common, and the amount of time businesses dedicate to training their employees about cybersecurity doesn’t seem to match the risks.
The 108-page report examines in great depth data breaches and the incidents that cause them. The DBIR team examined more than 914,000 incidents and nearly 235,000 data breaches. Check out the document to see the microtrends within each vertical and each attack pattern.
