86% of Data Breaches Miss Detection, How Do You Beat The Odds?

Information security is simply not detecting the bad guys

This according to the Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report. In fact, antivirus, intrusion detection systems, and log review all pick up less than 1% of data breach incidents. Very few companies do proactive monitoring and those that do are simply troubleshooting problems they already know about. The result is that 86% of data breach incidents were ultimately detected by someone other than the victimized organization; an embarrassing statistic.

Only 35% of organizations audit to determine whether privileged users are tampering with systems. As well, for nearly 70% of organizations, it would take greater than one day to detect and correct unauthorized database access or change. With average data breach compromises taking less than a day, the majority of organizations could lose millions of dollars before even noticing.
