Wow. An incredible stat for the security market in 2010.

On many levels of FTP or file transfer, this is a staggering number of instances. What file transfer processes are being used to avoid a security breach in your small, medium or large business environment?

Check out the Knowledge Transfer blog on Ipswitch File Transfer’s corporate site for more on security breaches in 2010.

  • Malicious attacks still account for more breaches than human error, with hacking at 17% and insider theft at 15%
  • 39% of listed breaches did not identify the cause — Indicating a clear lack of transparency and full reporting to the public
  • 49% of breaches did not list number of potentially exposed records — A clear sign of inaccuracy and incompleteness of reporting
  • 62% of breaches reported exposure of Social Security Numbers
  • 26% of breaches involved credit or debit cards
