Breaches notified External vs. Internal, Average vs. Median
"...from an external source such as law enforcement, they publicly reported the incident within 43 days, on average.  ...via an internal team, they took a much longer 74 days on average to report it. Half of all externally discovered incidents were reported in just eight days compared with a median of 46 days for internal discovery."

 Makes perfect sense that organization would report breaches notified by external sources sooner.  Since the orgs do not control external sources, they either get ahead of the publicity or risk being exposed later.  However, my beef is with the big difference between the average and the median numbers.  Apparently, significant numbers of organization still not only don't take breaches seriously, but also have much longer response time comparing with the majority of organizations.
