In preparing its 2024 Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR), Verizon analyzed 30,458 security incidents, which included 10,626 confirmed breaches, that occurred in 2023. According to the May 1 Press Release, that’s double the number from 2022, which should be a source of concern all by itself. However, there is more disturbing news this year.
