Re: #Attacks vs Size

The proportion of targeted attacks was about the same independent of employee count. However, the average of 78 security investigations (found in the full report) varied a bit more based on employee count.

#Attacks vs Size
I would be interested to know how well (or not) the number of attacks correlates with the number of employees in your sample.  Is there a systematic relationship?  Correlation is not causation, but graphs of attacks vs size (revenue, #employees, etc) would be interesting nevertheless.  I did not see this info during a quick scan of the report.  Could you show us these?

More the point, last I heard it takes enterprises an average of six months to discover an attack.

Agility is key.
