Data Breach Survey Results

Lindsay Hamilton of - (broken link) Cervello Consultants has just started a new blog aimed at data security, data breaches and data security vulnerability scanning and activity monitoring. This should be worth watching as data breaches are certainly an in topic subject with lots of reports of data loss and data theft reported on main stream news and also even dedicated TV programs created on the subject.

Lindsay has just posted an entry to his blog about a new survey on data breaches. The blog post is titled - (broken link) The ignored evidence of data breaches …. and is very interesting in that its been conducted over many years using a lot of data and also it certainly confirms what I see day to day at clients; particularly the fact that most clients seem to leave the data outside of the database and any security that they have created there. Also telling is the issue of breach evidence that is not noticed by the owner of the data.

This is a nice post and I have also added Lindsays blog feed to my blogs aggregator.
