Trustwave's Global Security Report
Trust and security are big deals these days for companies, and security firm Trustwave's annual Global Security Report adds some recent stats to the picture.
Last year, for instance, there was a 53.6 percent increase in security breach investigations in two dozen countries, compared to 2013. Forty-five percent of data thefts were for confidential information not related to payment, such as financial credentials, internal communications, personally identifiable information and an assortment of consumer records.
And, in the Department of Not Being Surprised, weak passwords "opened the door for initial intrusion" for 31 percent of security breaches investigated by Trustwave last year.

Enhancements include a new "minimalist" user interface, a new meeting management feature, a more streamlined resource management, more control for the user community, and technical improvements that the company said boost performance and increase the number of users.
