Companies Reacting More Quickly to Data Breaches: Trustwave Report
Sometimes the good guys fight back and win. Trustwave’s 2019 Global Security Report found that median time to detect and contain a data breach dropped from 93 days in 2017 to 41 days in 2018. Incidents related to Point of Sales systems went down sharply as merchants made wider use of chip cards. But there’s plenty of work remaining: Trustwave found at least one vulnerability in every application it examined; the media was 15 vulnerabilities of which 9% were high risk or critical.
