• UK security breach investigations report: an analysis of data compromise cases

      Maple, Carsten; Phillips, Alan; University of Bedfordshire; 7Safe (7Safe, 2010)
      This report, rather than relying on questionnaires and self-reporting, concerns cases that were investigated by the forensic investigation team at 7Safe. Whilst removing any inaccuracies arising from self-reporting, the authors acknowledge that the limitation of the sample size remains. It is hoped that the unbiased reporting by independent investigators has yielded interesting facts about modern security breaches. All data in this study is based on genuine completed breach investigations conducted by the compromise investigation team over the last 18 months.
