One problem that every information security organization faces is how to accurately quantify the risks that they manage. In most cases, there is not enough information available to do this. There is now enough known about data breaches to let us draw interesting conclusions, some of which may even have implications in other areas of information security. This talk describes what we can learn from a careful analysis of the available information on data breaches, how we can extend what we learn about data breaches to other aspects of information security, and why doing this makes sense.
