Verizon 2010 Data Breach Report Is Eye Opening

48% of breaches caused by insiders with 90% of those being deliberate!

The 2010 Verizon and U.S. Secret Service breach report is chock full of enlightening facts, figures and statistics. I highly recommend you read it cover to cover. It breaks down the breaches by demographic, threat agents, threat actions, attack difficulty and targeting, vertical, and time span. It also compares how PCI compliance affected the number and severity of breaches. You can grab it here www.verizonbusiness.com/go/2010databreachreport/
