Report: Web App Attacks Are Top Cause of Data Breaches

Verizon’s 2014 Data Breach Investigations Report finds that 35 percent of data breaches in 2013 targeted Web apps, making these types of attacks the most common type of security incident. And unfortunately, enterprises are doing a poor job of finding these attacks themselves. In incidents with a financial motive, only 9 percent of organizations identified the problem internally; in incidents with an ideological motive, only 1 percent did so.
