Intrusion vs. Breach: How security analytics & automated response can improve your chances of avoiding a breach
60% of breached organisations included in the 2015 Verizon DBIR were initially compromised within minutes, and yet for most of those organisations it took hundreds of days to detect the intruders.

In fact, there are usually several steps that typically follow an initial compromise before the bad guys get away with the goods or disrupt a critical service.
Attackers can't hide on the Internet—in fact, they leave behind fingerprints in areas you may not realize.

This often happens before they perform reconnaissance on their targets or create the malware payload. All of this activity leaves clues about the attackers.
