Data breaches aren’t just a problem for security professionals. The impact is felt across the whole business—from your legal team, embroiled in litigation, to your frontline employees, who can’t access the tools they need to do their jobs. Everyone needs to play their part in managing the risks. But first you need to understand what you’re up against. You need confidence in your security if you’re going to get the most from the latest digital innovations. That’s why, every year, we publish the Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) —this is our 11th edition. Each report is based on analysis of thousands of real-world incidents—over 53,000 this year, including 2,216 confirmed data breaches.
53,308 security incidents, 2,216 data breaches, 65 countries, 67 contributors.
