The focus of the Verizon security team is preventing cyberattacks, but we also have a team dedicated to responding to incidents and providing remediation and forensics services. The RISK (Research, Investigations, Solutions and Knowledge) Team has been called in by organizations across the globe to deal with data breaches and other security incidents. Their work has formed the basis of our renowned Data Breach Investigations Report for more than ten years. And this year, they’ve also published the first Data breach digest – scenarios from the field, an engaging look into 18 actual cybercrime cases that we’ve investigated — all anonymized of course.
These 18 cybercrime case studies were chosen to represent the most common and destructive types of incidents that we’ve seen over the last eight years. For each incident, we reveal the events leading up to the breach, details of the investigation and the how we helped the organization recover. We also rank each of the 18 types of attack, explain who’s at risk, and describe what steps you can take to better protect your organization.
