'There is a big increase in the hackers now hacking in their own backyard.'

‘Ensure security basics everywhere’

If you are looking for advice on how data breaches can be averted, here is a simple one-liner from Mark Goudie: Ensure security basics are deployed everywhere. “Companies need to avoid peaks of security excellence while also having troughs of poor security,” adds Goudie, Verizon Business managing principal for Investigative Response in Asia-Pacific. The attacker only needs to find one single point of weakness to launch his attack, Goudie cautions, during the course of a quick e-mail interview with eWorld, shortly after the recent release of ‘2009 Data Breach Investigations Report’ by Verizon Business ( http://www.verizonbusiness.com/).
