Summary : Based on forensic evidence collected from our partner organizations as well as the Verizon caseload, the 2019 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) presents a rare and comprehensive view into the world of corporate cybercrime. Now in its twelfth year of publication, this research has been used by thousands of organizations to evaluate and improve their security programs. The presentation will discuss the evolution of results over the years, and delve into the people, methods, and motives that drive attackers today. Attendees will learn about the most common attacks that affect their industry. They will learn about the actors who perpetrate these incidents, the techniques they use to carry out their attacks, the assets they prefer to exploit to gain entry into their victim’s systems and networks, and the results of their actions. They will leave this session better equipped to make evidence-based decisions on the risks their organizations face on a daily basis.
