The bad guys are winning, according to Verizons 2014 Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) that says theres large increase in cyber crime. d the reports lead author Wade Baker says But somehow thats not all bad news?  According to the authors, this year more than 63,000 security incidents were analyzed, but the high figure shouldnt be too intimidating:  This evolution  of the DBiR reflects the experience of many security practitioners and executives who know that an incident needn’t result in data exfiltration for it to have a significant impact on the targeted business. The report, which has been compiled by Verizons security arm every year for the last decade, finds that 97 percent of crimes fall into nine categories of security breaches, including point of sales intrusions, web app attacks, cyber espionage, insider misuse, card skimmers, DoS attacks, crimeware, miscellaneous errors and physical theft.
