I think everyone involved in IT Security knows that the majority of IT Security incidents are not reported outside the organizations in which they occur.   This excerpt from an article published in InformationWeek.com should be of interest to IT Security folks as well as CIO’s.   To read the full article follow the link at the bottom of the post:

“The unwritten rule among companies is that the less said about security breaches, the better. For every public revelation of stolen data there are dozens of breaches that don’t make the news.

That’s why this article draws on direct observations from real-world security breaches on which we’ve performed forensic investigations, to help companies understand how breaches happen and what to do about them.”
