Big data breaches paper wins award

Research Sheds New Light on Big Data Breaches

In June 2015, Stephanie Forrest, Ben Edwards, and Steven Hofmeyr published a paper, Research Sheds New Light on Big Data Breaches, that argues that data breaches are not getting bigger or more frequent, according to the data that is available. It won a best paper award at the Workshop on Economics of Information Security, which has become one of the better venues for publishing security papers that are more than just traditional technical contributions.
