  • Truth is SCARIER than Fiction Redux

    October, 2014, Mike Weber, Vice President, Coalfire Labs

    Yes... To be honest, although we really do some neat stuff here at Coalfire Labs that can be pretty scary, I’ve got to give a shout out to “reality” for being even scarier than any emulated attack we could possibly develop.  The astounding number of data breaches announced this year is just shocking, really.  It really felt like there was a new one every month.  As it turns out, there was!  Even more than that on average, as we’ve had at least 14 of them over a 10 month span.
