The Most Important Cyber Statistic and How to Avoid Becoming a Statistic Yourself: Cybersecurity Trends

My most recent blog post for IPRO’s blog is about possibly the most important cyber statistic and what you can do to avoid becoming a statistic yourself (or at least limit your exposure if you are attacked).

Last month, I presented a webinar for ACEDS titled Ten Recent Cybersecurity and Data Breach Trends You Need to Know with the awesome Debbie Reynolds, who is known as the “Data Diva”. If you’re an ACEDS member, you can still watch it on-demand by selecting “My Courses” in the top right corner of any page when logged in. It was a fun and informative webinar where we introduced ten eye-popping statistics related to cybersecurity and data breaches and then discussed how individuals and organizations can avoid becoming a statistic themselves.

One of the ten statistics we presented stands apart from the rest as perhaps the most important cybersecurity statistic I’ve seen in a long time – because it reflects just how long it takes us to realize when we’ve actually been hacked.

What is that most important cyber statistic and what does it mean in terms of how long it takes to identify and contain a data breach? And what is perhaps the best way to limit exposure to cyber attacks? You can find out on IPRO’s blog here! Let’s just say that if you don’t check it out, you could be feeling a lot of regret a few days after Halloween! 😮

So, what do you think? What does your organization do to minimize the risk of cyber attacks (or the exposure from them)? Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
