2011 Verizon Cyberattack Report Published

First saw this on Computerworld, but the Verizon 2011 Cyberattack Report is out.  One of the big takeaways is that they estimate 97% of the attacks were avoidable without the need for “difficult or expensive countermeasures”.  This seems completely plausible to me, especially since the human element is such a large and vulnerable component of an information security strategy, and because it seems that it is often easier for organizations to throw money at a problem and expect it to go away then to spend the time to really analyze the situation and monitor it on a recurring basis.  But information security (much like EM) is a process, not a product.
