A new report is in need of digesting by Information Security Professionals!  Some of the findings simply back up what we already know, but it’s nice to know what we know is reality!  Meanwhile, some of the more interesting findings include:

  • Data breaches are increasing in frequency.  In 2013, the study showed 33% of respondents had a data breach involving loss or theft of more than 1000 records containing sensitive information.  In 2014, that number rose to 43%.

  • 68 percent of respondents do not agree that their organizations understand what needs to be done following a material data breach to prevent negative public opinion, blog posts, and media reports.

  • 67 percent of respondents do not agree that their organizations understand what needs to be done following a material data breach to prevent the loss of customers’ and business partners’ trust and confidence.

  • 62 percent of respondents do not agree that that their organizations are prepared to respond to a data breach involving business confidential information and intellectual property.

  • 49 percent of respondents do not agree that their organizations are prepared to respond to the theft of sensitive and confidential information that requires notification to victims and regulators.
