Top 5 Observations from the 2023 Verizon DBIR
In 2023, it’s imperative to know what your business is up against in order to begin securing your data and ensuring the success of your business. With 83% of breaches involving financially motivated external actors, 74% involving a human element of social engineering attacks, errors, or misuse, and 50% (double of last year) of those social engineering attacks being pretexting incidents, it’s been time for organizations to pay attention and get ahead.
In the rapidly evolving landscape of cybersecurity, these stats are not just numbers but an indication of the rising severity of cybercrime. Staying ahead of the latest threats and vulnerabilities is paramount for organizations.
