47,000+ security incidents ANALYZED.
621 confirmed data breaches STUDIED.
6th consecutive year.
There’s only one DBIR.
Verizon’s 2013 Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) provides truly global insights into the nature of data breaches that can help organizations of all sizes to better understand the threat and take the necessary steps to protect themselves. The breadth and depth of data represented in this year’s DBIR is unprecedented. It combines the efforts of 19 global organizations: law enforcement agencies, national incident-reporting entities, research institutions, and a number of private security firms — all working to study and combat data breaches.
Over the years the number of contributors has grown. Since we started publishing the DBIR in 2008, our partners have contributed data information on more than 2,500 confirmed data breaches — totaling more than a billion compromised records.
How can we turn all that raw data into information that you can use? The answer is VERIS, the Vocabulary for Event Recording and Incident Sharing. VERIS is a common, structured and repeatable language that describes who did what, to whom, with what result. By classifying all the information regarding the submitted breaches into this standardized format we can extract meaningful insight from what is an incredibly diverse dataset.
