UK Security Breach Investigations Report 2010 Published
An analysis of actual data compromise cases has been released by Computer Security and Forensics consulting firm 7Safe and the University of Bedfordshire.
Anonymised data has been analysed from over 60 computer forensic investigations undertaken by 7Safe in what makes for fascinating reading.
Co-author and 7Safe CEO Alan Phillips said “Compared with many existing studies that are based purely on survey data, this report reveals what is really happening in the UK. The work carried out by 7Safe’s breach investigation team has been expertly analysed by Professor Carsten Maple of the University of Bedfordshire, and the results are intriguing.
Professor Maple commented, “To my knowledge this report is the first of its kind in the UK, and many businesses will find the results very interesting. It has been a pleasure working with 7Safe, who are renowned as publisher and co-author of the ACPO Good Practice Guide for Computer-Based Electronic Evidence, and with whom the university operates a joint Master of Science in Computer Security and Forensics.”
The UK Security Breach Investigations Report, supported by high profile organisations SOCA (Serious Organised Crime Agency) and the Metropolitan Police’s Police Central e-Crime Unit, is available in digital format free of charge from www.7Safe.com/breach_report.
