#1359 APAC unprepared for security breaches: FireEye's Mandiant
Mandiant, a FireEye company, said it had responded to a number of high profile breaches in 2015, finding that organisations in the Asia-Pacific region were frequently unprepared to identify and respond to such events in a timely manner.

In its latest report, Mandiant M-Trends Asia Pacific, the cyberforensics firm found that organisations across APAC allowed attackers to dwell in their environments for a median period of 520 days before discovering them -- three times the global median of 146 days.

"In 2015, we continued to see heightened levels of cyber threat activity across APAC," the report says. "We surmise that this is likely fuelled by regional geopolitical tensions, relatively immature network defences and response capabilities, and a rich source of financial data, intellectual property, and military and state secrets."
