89% of Security Incidents in 2007 Unreported
I've been saying for the past few years that most security breaches go unreported, but I had no hard data to back it up. I just believed it by instinct and some anecdotal evidence. Now, we have a survey to point to with supporting data that claims 89% of data leakage incidents in 2007 went unreported. I've also talked a lot about non-malicious insider breaches which is listed as the #2 security challenge by respondents of this survey. I haven't seen that question asked very often. Interesting data points. Data leakage, lost devices, insider threats continue to be a major concern (along with email attachments, malware and phishing).
