Re: Report timing
@Kelly_Jackson_Higgins You are exactly correct, the breach is unsettling.  The fact that one of the largest companies within the most information security savvy sector was breached, and massively so, should be disturbing.  Attackers are pumping more money into finding new exploits than we are into new defenses.  I expect it will get worse before it gets better.

Re: Report timing
The DDoS attack wave was one thing, but an actual breach at a financial institution as in the case of JPM is unsettling. The financial services industry is the gold standard in security and has one of the most effective and powerful threat intel-sharing ISACs. I would be the industry is reassessing and becoming more vigilant now.

Report timing
I'm not surpised about the concern in the financial industry, giiven the timing of the 3Q report in relation to the JPMorgan breach. It will be interesting to see if cyberattacks continue to rank high if there isn't another high profile financial services breach in the near future.

Whether or not a data breach is a disaster for the organization depends on the security team's response and that is based on how the team developed a breach response plan beforehand and if it was thoroughly tested. Inside this report, experts share how to: -understand the technical environment, -determine what types of incidents would trigger the plan, -know which stakeholders need to be notified and how to do so, -develop steps to contain the breach, collect evidence, and initiate recovery.
