    Cyber threats are now the third-biggest worry for CEOs, according to a recent Lloyd’s survey.  Verizon Wireless and the VDC, along with the 2013 Data Breach Investigation Report, can assist developers in preventing and reducing the impact of cyber attacks. Corporations need to be equipped with the right defense for security breaches, and be prepared to face the increasing number of attacks. The 2013 DBIR can provide data and information to help developers build software to prevent such attacks.

    By knowing today’s threats, developers can help diminish the attacks of tomorrow. According to Verizon’s 2013 Data Breach Investigation Report (DBIR):

    • 37% of breaches affected financial organizations
    • 38% impacted larger corporations
    • 92% of attacks are done by outsiders
    • 52% of attacks were done by some form of hacking

    By utilizing the data from the DBIR and the tools provided by the VDC, developers can create apps and platforms that prevent cyber attacks. To get alerts for more content on cyber attack prevention, join the VDC today and gain access to various API and app solutions.
