According to Dark Reading, “Study: Breaches of Personal Data Now Prevalent in Enterprises:”
According to a study released yesterday by the Ponemon Institute and Deloitte & Touche, 85 percent of the security or privacy executive surveyed — some 800 individuals — claimed at least one reportable security incident in the past 12 months.
Sixty-three percent said they have experienced between six and 20 breaches affecting personally identifiable information (PII) in the past year.
Most of the reporting is on that 85% number. I think the second number is far more interesting — 63% have experiences more than 5 breaches–that shocks me. I’m way behind on Ponemon Institute research, and I hope to say more shortly.
[Update: see the comments for some excellent analysis.]
