Share Data to Make Sound Decisions
Cross-organizational trends and patterns can be identified effectively and efficiently when risk management and security incident data are collected from multiple sources. This analyzed information can be shared with the community to help its members make informed decisions. This is exactly what Verizon produced with its annual Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR), developed for the first time in 2010 in cooperation with the United States Secret Service (USSS). Verizon also recently announced its Enterprise Risk and Incident Sharing (VERIS) framework. VERIS, which was designed specifically to record security incident case data and other relevant details, has enabled Verizon and the USSS to capture more than 900 breaches that compromised more than 900 million records.
