1. POS Intrusions

Ranking No. 1 on the list is point-of-sale intrusions, which accounted for 28.5 percent of confirmed data breaches and 0.7 of total incidents. The trend, kicked off in full force at the end of 2013, continued throughout 2014 with both mega breaches and breaches of small companies on the rise.

"Attacks on POS systems are not new, and they are relevant to organizations big and small that are swiping cards to collect revenue. The attack methods are becoming more varied, even against small businesses. This is an indication that the threat actors are able to adapt, when necessary, to satisfy their motives (and greed will not be trending down any time soon)," the report said.
