Anecdotal Data Breach Digest is a prep manual for cyber combat
by Tim Greene
In one case pirates ? actual pirates ? boarded cargo ships armed with a list of which shipping containers contained jewelry and went straight to them, stole the gems and left.
In another, attackers took control of the mainframe at a water district, mixed sewage with the drinking water, boosted the chlorine to dangerous levels and stole customer information.
These are two of 18 representative case studies in Verizon?s new Data Breach Digest, a compendium of anonymized customer investigations performed by the company?s Research, Investigations, Solutions and Knowledge (RISK) Team and released at RSA Conference 2016.
