Why do breaches continue to happen?Brain-full-of-numbers.jpg

Companies are spending billions of dollars to prevent data breaches, yet they are still occurring every day. In all of the recent major breaches, forensic evidence existed to piece back together what happened.  Those bits of information about the breach existed in real-time as the breach was happening, but no one or no system was putting the pieces together. 

Major Breaches

Target – 70,000,000 Records

Anthem – 80,000,000 Records

Ashley Madison – 37,000,000 Records

Sony – 100TB of Data

OPM – 4,000,000 Records (US Government Employees)

The Problem and the Solution

The solution is to intelligently correlate the forensic data in real-time and take swift action on that information before an incident becomes a breach. The problem is, no one is looking for it. If the forensic data exists after the fact to determine what happened, then it existed in real-time, but no one did anything about it.
