Re: What is the premise of this article?

That's the posters point, when do you "discover" a breach?

If you see an increased number of connections in the logs, or a few customers call to change their credit card numbers it could take weeks to build up enough evidence that there is an actual security failure.

Of course, you could also "continue to investigate" for years before feeling that you have enough evidence - just like government inquiries
