Average Breach Detection Takes 10 Hours
DATA PROTECTIONJune 19, 2013
The average organization believes it would spot a data breach within 10 hours, according to a recent McAfee Global Survey. The survey polled 500 decision-makers from the U.S., UK, Germany and Australia earlier this year. Twenty-two percent said they could identify a breach within a day, while just more than one-third said it would take them only minutes, PC Advisor reports. “This study has shown what we’ve long suspected—that far too few organizations have real-time access to the simple question, ‘Am I being breached?’” said a McAfee spokesman. Meanwhile, Australia’s new breach notification laws could require companies to “dumb down” their monitoring capabilities, reports The Sydney Morning Herald.
