I forgot to write about this. I saw that the 2009 Verizon Data Breach report was out. This is a report I almost always read because it is interesting, concise, and full of validated data. Mainly, the fact that there are hard numbers to back up the real-world claims gives the paper credence. This is not just media spin doctoring. Or biased claims by any one company. Sure, any point could be countered, but with the amount of data collected and the source, there has to be some validity.
I have the paper downloaded, I just need time to spend reading and digesting.
