Orgs detecting breaches quicker, attackers more persistent

Although attackers are more persistent than ever, organizations are getting better at detecting breaches – on average discovering the intrusions about a week earlier.

The median time lapse between the beginning of a breach and its detection in 2017 was 57.5 days but in 2018 that gap narrowed to 50.5 days, according to FireEye’s 2019 M-Trends Report.
