Nothing (really) new under the Sun - Verizon Breach Report..

The Verizon RISK Team has once again released their annual Data Breach Investigations Report. [ Grab it Here ] Once more, the report makes for interesting reading and this year the discussion point is bound to be the marked decline noted in compromised records (From 361 million in 2008, to 144 million in 2009, to 4 million in 2010). We will kick off a ThinkstScapes adhoc update to customers analyzing the report, but thought one of the interesting points to note was the similarity between 2010 and 2011 recommendations. A quick point for point comparison shows that the 2011 recommendations are an almost perfect superset of the 2010 recommendations. The prognosis then? more of the same + a little bit more?
