It’s not always easy to know when you’re under attack, or when your security has already been breached. If you’re capable of detecting a breach, you might find it in as few as 10 days, but survey after survey finds that breaches that are detected by someone outside the business typically take over 100 days to find.
For one thing, between ecommerce, company websites, email, mobile users and overseas divisions, your company is doing business 24/7; however, your IT security team probably works business hours. That’s one way 60 percent of attackers are able to compromise an organization in minutes, according to Verizon’s 2015 Data Breach Investigations Report. But only a third of businesses can detect a breach within a few days.
