Been hacked? Now to decide if you chase the WHO or the HOW

Little Mouse

Absolutely right. "Who" may be unimportant if the hackers simply picked you out of the phonebook, so to speak. But how can you know whether it was a random attack or not if you don't bother to find out?

A significant number of attacks must either be inside jobs or competitors seeking an edge. In which case, "Who" is arguably more important that "How".
