Consider this: According to Verizon’s 2015 Data Breach Investigations Report, attackers, on average, required less than two days to breach an organization’s network. The report mentions, “In 60 percent of the cases, attackers were able to compromise an organization within minutes.”
Defenders (75%), however, took much longer to find the data breach. Target staff required nearly three weeks to discover the compromise to the company’s network.
What if it was faster to find information stolen from a data breach than it was to detect the breach?
