June, reminds us of 2 things, first how fast another year has passed and second - Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR).

Since 2008 Verizon has been releasing Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) that has provided the world of Infosec valuable insights and detailed analysis of the evolving threat landscape from various viewpoints (industrial segments, geography specifics etc).

Report Highlights

Stolen credentials remain the biggest concern and the reason for 86% breaches over the web. Reports also states that most targeted assets were the servers rather than individual applications or devices.
