CIS 693 Week 2

Week 2 of CIS-693

In looking through the Verizon’s Data Breach Investigations Report one of the biggest items that stood out to me was that around 50% of the attacks were conducted by organized criminal groups. This shows how much money there is that can be made by these groups. With the criminal groups being the largest individual share of attackers it goes hand in hand with the growing motive being financial as also shown in the report. Compared to the past when many of the attacks were conducted by individuals who did it just to see if they could do it, or did it to deface or damage a company.

This shows that companies need to be even more vigilant as organized can bring more resources to bear in attacks compared to individuals.
