Dear ISSA-BE Member,
Dear Security Professional,

Data breaches continue to plague organizations worldwide and Verizon, this year again in collaboration with the U.S. Secret Service and new this year, the National High Tech Crime Unit of the Netherlands Policy Agency (KLPD) - continue to analyze them.

Once again, Verizon is very glad to share their newest research into the world of data breaches: “the Verizon 2011 Data Breach Investigations Report” (DBIR) with you. We will do so in print as well as face-to-face, if you are available.

On 10th May, Wade Baker, director of risk intelligence for Verizon and creator, author and primary analyst for Verizon’s DBIR series, is presenting the analysis, findings and recommendations of the 2011 DBIR at an ISSA-BE event… and you’re invited.

Venue: Verizon, Ubicenter, Philipssite 5, 3001 Leuven
Time: 10th May, 6 p.m. – 8.45 p.m. (networking until 10 p.m.)

Register Now!

Should you not be available or wish to prepare for Wade Baker’s visit on 10th May, feel free to download a soft copy of the 2011 DBIR now.

Some of the 2011 DBIR key findings:
- 92% stemmed from external agents;
- 97% of breaches were avoidable through simple and intermediate controls;
- 89% of victims subject to PCI-DSS had not achieved compliance;
- 50% utilised some form of hacking
