The Verizon RISK Team with the cooperation from the U.S. Secret Service,
Australian Federal Police, Dutch High Tech Crime Unit, Irish Reporting and
Information Security Service, and the Police Central e-Crime Unit (modeled
after Scotland Yard) has released an 80-page study -- the 2012 Data Breach
Investigation Report. The report covers threat agents and actions,
compromised assets and data, attack difficulty and attack targeting,
anti-forensics, breach discovery, and the the impact of data breaches.
Investigative and security professionals, even if not directly involved with
computer forensics, should consider reviewing the report which covers the
entities behind many of the data breaches, the manner in which they occur,
and the commonalities that exist.
The full report is available at:
