Verizon’s Security Report: Key Takeaways and Your Steps to Stay Safe

Here’s a breakdown of Verizon’s Data Breach Investigation Report with actionable advice:

  • People are the Weakest link. Most breaches involve human error. Secure your systems based on your needs.
  • Top Attack Methods: Credential theft (use 2-factor authentication!) Phishing emails (don’t click, don’t reply, and don’t share information) Unpatched vulnerabilities (update software regularly)
  • Browsers as Backdoors: Use Privacy Badger and uBlock Origin browser extensions. Clear your cache often.
  • Phishing Emails are effective; Many people fall for them. Be suspicious, verify senders, and delete unknown emails.
  • Lost Devices are common. 80% of mobile devices are lost, not stolen. Secure your devices!
  • Small businesses are targeted: Don’t underestimate your data’s value. Don’t rely on weak security practices.
