CLEVELAND, OH – Vestige Digital Investigations is named an official Contributor to the Verizon 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) released at the annual RSA Conference.  The list of contributors span both public and private entities that cover cybersecurity threats around the world.

Verizon releases its annual DBIR that provides analysis of information security incidents, with a specific focus on data breaches. The report is highly anticipated every year for those in the Information Security field.  It also provides valuable takeaways for many in the corporate world.

“Verizon reached out to Vestige to be a Contributor for the second year. We are pleased to continue to help contribute our extensive experience in cybersecurity matters in 2016 toward actionable real-world prevention to help organizations protect themselves from cyber incidents and data breach,” said Greg Kelley, EnCE DFCP and Chief Technology Officer at Vestige Digital Investigations.

The DBIR is produced by the Verizon RISK (Research, Investigations, Solutions, Knowledge) team within Verizon’s Enterprise Services business unit. The report’s data set combines data from public and private organizations around the world, including law enforcement agencies, national incident-reporting entities, research institutions, private security firms and Verizon. Before being analyzed, the case studies, reports and interviews are standardized using the Vocabulary for Event Recording and Incident Sharing (VERIS) Framework. Each year, Verizon seeks to increase the size of its data set by incorporating data from more contributors.

Highlights include: Who’s behind the breaches; What tactics they use; Who the victims are; Other commonalities; Social media attacks; Ransomeware; and for the first time in its report series, Verizon introduced an “Industries” section that focuses in on industry-specific findings, making a special point of putting their data into context; and­­ much more.
