It’s been nearly two months since Verizon’s highly anticipated, much respected, sure-to-be-quoted-all-year, 2011 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) was published.

In the context of the many data breaches that have happened as of late, we thought it an opportune time to point out some* blog posts and podcasts by really smart InfoSec folks that have done a stellar job at distilling and digesting the wealth of knowledge contained in Verizon’s 2011 DBIR into manageable, actionable nuggets.

So here it goes (in order of publish date):

*This is by no means a comprehensive list, probably just enough to whet your DBIR appetite!
