Lessons Learned from Six Major Data Breaches

By: Mike ChappleAdjunct Research Advisor

Abstract

This IDC Perspective identifies lessons that IT executives can draw from six high-profile security breaches. These lessons reinforce recognized best practices in the cybersecurity field and set the foundation for a strong cybersecurity program. Technology leaders should take steps today to verify that they have these standard security controls in place and that they are functioning effectively to reduce the likelihood and impact of future major security breaches.

"Every security breach that we read about in the news provides us with an opportunity to reflect upon the root causes of the situation and use those breaches to improve our own security posture. High-profile breaches offer us the ability to learn from the mistakes of others, rather than repeating them ourselves," said Mike Chapple, adjunct research analyst, IDC.
