Verizon’s extensive annual Data Breach Investigations Report is out now and worth a read.

It includes data based on cases provided by Mishcon de Reya, where cybercrime partner Hugo Plowman said: “We know from the work we do for our clients how important it is to be prepared for data breach, and the need to act quickly in the event that one occurs. Many incident response plans focus on containment and mitigation. It is of course important for a business to contain the problem and mitigate against further damage following a data breach, but there are legal steps that can be taken to identify hackers, recover data and prevent its misuse that are presently being overlooked by some businesses. Asset recovery action should be part and parcel of any crisis response plan.”
