ISSA National Capital Chapter February meeting topic:
Verizon 2015 Annual Data Breach Investigations Report
by Wade Baker
Wade will go “off script” from the main DBIR to explore some side alleys of the underlying data and try to answer some big picture questions about information security management. He’s not exactly sure yet what those will be, but promises it will be interesting and instructive. He also promises to give a light taste of what’s cooking for the 2015 DBIR (which is in the works now and the reason this abstract is so short).
