CIS BenchmarkSYSTEM HARDENING VULNERABILITY MANAGEMENT

A report released on Tuesday shows that the number of residents affected by data breaches in 2013 increased considerably compared to the previous year.

Data breaches affect us all and this report by the California Office of the Attorney General highlights the extent to which the breaches that make the headlines, such as Target, do ultimately have an impact on us.

The report states that 53% of all breaches were a result of cyber attacks (hacking and malware), while the rest were caused by the physical loss or theft of devices containing unencrypted information (26%), unintentional errors (18%), and malicious insiders (4%).

The conclusion? Hardening against hacking and malware, coupled with file integrity monitoring-backed breach detection, are still the most urgent requirements and must be implemented now.
